Fortunately the sun is shining in the sky, in the immortal words of the Electric Light Orchestra, so brilliantly rendered by Mr B the Gentleman Rhymer on his banjolele at Exhibition Road Music Day on Sunday. At least the sun was shining when I started writing this blog.
So come along for a unique urban picnic experience at the Museum and also get acquainted with our summer blockbuster exhibition The Deep Sea, pictured below. We will be open until 21.30 on Friday.
We'll have an interesting Victorian-style bar out on the Darwin Centre Courtyard terrace, shown left, where you can have a bellini, beer or gin fizz and reminisce about how Kitchener knew your father. We have live jazz, picnic rugs for hire, and a suitably summery food menu for you to try out.
During the evening, we will have a free microfossil workshop in the Central Hall.
Bill Wyman took part in this workshop when we put it on at the recent VIP launch of The Deep Sea – much to my astonishment! The workshop is great fun, so do take a look at it.
There are more After Hours to come on 30 July and 27 August.
