The Natural History Museum is hosting a fun-filled sleepover evening where you can explore the museums galleries at night time. From dinosaurs to creepy crawlies the museum is packed full of wonders.

The night is bursting with activities with stand up comedy, live music and a unique midnight feast (which even includes edible insects!). You’ll also get a three course dinner (without any insects!) and can enjoy a wine, beer or soft drink from their cash bars. With an all-night monster movie marathon too, we can’t guarantee you’ll get much sleep but there will be a full hot breakfast waiting for you in the morning to brighten you up!

This event is for adults aged 18 and over, places are limited so we suggest you book early to avoid disappointment!
