5 most weird & wonderful events at Emerge

1.  THE VAGINA MUSEUM WORKSHOP

“Is my vagina normal?” This is a question almost every vagina-owner has asked themselves at some point. But just like fingerprints, no two vaginas are the same. The Vagina Museum hosts a workshop to help sort the fact from the fiction.

When and where? The Jewish MuseumSaturday 18:00-22:00 (drop-in sessions)

2.  IMMERSIVE CHOCOLATE CABARET QUEST

Why is a raven like a writing desk? No idea, but that’s the type of wild clue you’re likely to encounter at this off-the-wall cabaret experience. Part immersive theatre, part escape room, part treasure hunt, Buckbuck Games is a mad mix of puzzles, theatre and improv. Jump down the rabbit hole, throw yourself into the mayhem and reap the chocolatey rewards.

When and where? The Chocolate Museum, Saturday 19:00-23:00

3.  LIFE-SIZE OPERATION GAME   

Yep, it’s exactly what it sounds like, a life-size game of Operation with a feminist twist.

When and where? The Old Operating Theatre, Saturday 18:30-22:30

4.  LONDON LEGO WORKSHOP      

A workshop with a Lego artist, where you can build your own London edifice from the capital’s magnificent skyline. Down a floor and if you’re timing’s right, catch a pop-up talk in the Architecture of London show – where a bit of Roman wall stands casually next to some iconic brutalism, a wee medieval church sits coolly across from the Gherkin.

When and where? Guildhall Art Gallery, Friday 19:00-22:00

 

4.  A BAND CALLED ‘JIZ’      

Jiz describe themselves as: “Born witness to the emasculation of an ubuesque society” projecting their “echoes in a remote room built out of tapestries, sounds and daydreams in order to dissociate the palpable aberrations from the impalpable”. Wow. 

When and where? The Bomb Factory Art Foundation, Friday 19:00 – 21:30, 20:00 – 20:30, 21:00 – 21:30
