London Underground's Design & Heritage Manager Mike Ashworth will look at why London still uses woollen fabric's (almost unique in the subway world) and how this fits into TfL's corporate identity.
You'll also hear from Wallace & Sewell the design duo who created the brand new moquette (pictured above) which will be on used on refurbished Central Line trains from 2011, and other new trains. They will discuss the challenge of designing within very tight parameters - 4 colours - exact repeat size - then working with a mill to translate the design into fabric.
If you look closely into the new design (known officially as Barman) you can see a Londony skyline with the London Eye.
The evening will also include exclusive tours of the Museum's Design for Travel gallery. You can finish off the night with a moquette themed make-and-take workshop with The Make Lounge where you'll be able to design and decorate a set of two moquette patterned drinking glasses.
