We hope to introduce more live events soon. In the meantime, find out more about our programme of virtual events.

Join us for an evening of discovery as our Museum scientists discuss the wonders of the natural world.

On the first Tuesday of every month our in-house experts will cover some of the most weird and wonderful aspects of their scientific research.

The evening will consist of two separate talks centred around a different theme each month. Your ticket will include entry to both talks on the night and a complimentary drink.

The bar will be open all evening so you can sip on a soft drink as you learn about sharks or muse over mammoths with a nice glass of wine.
