High Society

"Opium, morphine, cocaine and cannabis are on sale in every high-street pharmacy."

Friday 11th February, The Wellcome Collection continue their investigation of drugs culture with an evening of magic lantern slides, and a private view of their widely acclaimed exhibition, High Society - I may well attend! Saturday 12th February, a further series of talks relating to the exhibition - more here. Reviews have been good ... here's fab London journalist Peter Watts in the New Statesman with a detailed analysis.


  1. This looks really superb. Thanks for posting because I had no idea it was going on.

  2. Excellent. I think I'm definitely going to the magic lantern night; but I've heard good things about the exhibition generally.

  3. I don't live in the local area, so unfortunately won't be able to go to both days. I would love to though! The magic lantern night does sound so good!
