Looking at a star is like time travel because the light emanating from it has taken a long time to reach visibility from Earth. When you look up at the stars on the 13th November you will be travelling back to the Georgian period - at least you will if you pay a visit to the National Maritime Museum, which is holding a Clocking Off Late night. For £5 (or £4 concessions) you will get to delve into eighteenth century London in a celebration of ships, stars, clocks, and the Georgians.

So that no one notices that you are from the future, it will be important to dress the part, so when you get there, you'll have the opportunity to take part in some fun workshops, which include designing your own tri-cornered hat with Steampunk seamstress, Miss Emilly Ladybird and joining artist, Sue Walker, to create your own eighteenth century wig.

Technically photography was not invented yet, but fortunately Shore Leave and Little Hen Productions have brought some modern equipment with them so that you can take a Georgian Selfie.

The Frolick orchestra will bring eighteenth century entertainment with a twenty-first century twist, and Chan Ranbir presents a five-year realtime narrative through a graphic novel, performance, and film.

On the education side of things, you'll get to discover the links and legacies between astronomy, longitude, and satellites, and watch an exciting lecture, in which curators are threatened with walking the plank.
