Coming around faster than I’d have thought possible, we are now approaching the last in this season’s late night openings of Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year and the Darwin Centre. It’s been an excellent if short run of After Hours this time around, and we are very pleased with the very good numbers we have been getting.
People seem to engage very deeply with the wildlife photographs in the exhibition, which is wonderful to see, because they are engaging with nature in its myriad forms, as well as the photographic skills on display. Pictured left is the exhibition's wall display of 1000s of wildlife competition images, closely studied by an After Hours visitor. Visit our After Hours web page to book for the exhibiton.
At this Friday’s After Hours on 26 March, we welcome Ludo Graham, the executive producer of BBC Two’s Museum of Life series about the Museum, who is giving a talk with film clips in the Attenborough Studio about the making of the series. Find out about the After Hours BBC tallk with Museum of Life executive producer on our website.
Our feisty arachnid curator Jan Beccaloni is back for another stint in the Darwin Centre's specimen preparation lab. She'll be there with some of her beloved specimens between 18.30 and 21.30 approximately.
The Darwin Centre bar will also be open again, as well as the Central Hall and Fossil Way bars.
And the great news is that although After Hours is finishing its winter season on Friday, it'll be back in the summer. So watch out for more updates in my blog and on the website.
