Riff on the Roof

Test your architectural acumen and hyperbolic know-how in the Design Museum’s new live game show, Riff on the Roof. Tim Ross hosts an afternoon of hilarious insights and design trivia.

What's it all about?

Riff on the Roof takes the form of a live game show, hosted by comedian Tim Ross, where everyone in the audience has a chance to win by answering questions and taking part in mini-challenges about the new museum, design and architecture. All 200 audience members have the chance to win a host of prizes.

Tim Ross will start the session with a humorous talk about the new museum and why design matters, providing an outside view on the newly renovated building and museum.

Riff on the roof will be a fun, witty and irreverent event allowing the museum’s audience to have their say and feel part of the museum’s new beginnings in its spectacular new home.
