New Year's Eve


Dancing in the dark

Calling all night owls: get ready for the wildest New Year's Eve party in London, celebrating the creatures of the night.

This event has now passed.

Join us for Lates online and a whole host of other online events.

Our New Year's Eve party returns with a delightfully dark twist as we celebrate in collaboration with experiential events company It's Unknown. 

Pick up a complimentary drink and get ready to have a hoot in an evening packed with wild activities. Try your luck at Musical Bingo, make your evening shine with UV body paint and have a dance (and a howl) at the Museum of the Moon silent disco. 

You can also make nocturnal animal masks, roam the galleries and dance the night away with our Massaoke band and DJ. For those who fancy a shot in the dark, there will be bars serving drinks and light refreshments all night.

Night on the tiles

A DJ will be spinning your favourite party classics as part of an evening packed with music and entertainment.

Explore the exhibitions

Both of the Museum's special exhibitions will be open for you to explore: Wildlife Photographer of the Year and Museum of the Moon.

What is Massaoke?

An amazing live band plays the greatest pop, indie and rock anthems of all time and the crowd sings along, guided by big screen lyrics.

Musical Bingo

It’s just like regular bingo, but instead of numbers, you mark off songs as you hear them in our themed rounds, with the chance to win great prizes.

Dress to impress

Dressing up is part of the fun, so get in the mood with a wild outfit inspired by this year's theme: creatures of the night.
