Save £30 and get your New Year's Eve planned now with early-bird tickets to an enchanting evening under the sea at the Natural History Museum.

Dance the night away under our colossal blue whale as you ring in 2018 with an underwater twist at the Natural History Museum's New Year’s Eve party.

You're invited to join us for an enchanting evening under the sea to send off 2017. This unforgettable night of oceanic proportions is hosted in collaboration with Guilty Pleasures and inspired by the arrival of the blue whale in the newly redeveloped Hintze Hall.

Pick up your complimentary drink when you arrive and immerse yourself in the Museum's stunning surroundings. You can explore the Dinosaurs gallery, tear up the dance floor at the silent disco, try your luck at Musical Bingo or sing along with crowd for Massaoke before counting down to midnight.

Everyone is encouraged to come out of their shell and dress to impress, using our under-the-sea theme as style inspiration.

Bars will serve drinks and light refreshments throughout the night.
