Natural History Museum to host ‘Creatures of the Night’ Themed New Year’s Eve Party

Wednesday, December 18, 2019 - 16:30

This New Year’s Eve, the Natural History Museum in South Kensington is once again opening its doors to visitors for a party with a delightfully dark twist, celebrating ‘Creatures of the Night’ in partnership with experiential events company It’s Unknown. Covering everything from nocturnal animals to outer space, this event is sure to wow guests with its incredible range of activities.

From 8pm, the museum will be open for guests to explore, with a range of activities available including musical bingo, animal encounters with ethical handlers Zoolab, a massaoke band, a photobooth by Say Fromage and a silent disco under the ‘Museum of the Moon’ installation, where guests can visit a UV body paint station before taking to the dancefloor. DJ Rapture will provide the music for the evening, accompanied by interactive entertainment including Ocho the Octopus.

Guests will ring in the new year under Hope the Blue Whale in the spectacular Hintze Hall, enjoying a selection of tasty small bites throughout the evening for guests to purchase.

Megan Webster, events producer for visitor events comments: “We’re thrilled to be able to offer visitors such a unique night at the museum, when it’s usually closed to the public. Being able to host activities all over the museum allows guests a truly magical experience, and celebrating under Hope the Whale is a wonderfully intimate way to ring in 2020. The Natural History Museum is one of the grandest buildings in London, and it’s important to us to celebrate the new decade in style!”

The event runs from 8pm-1am with tickets costing £99, including free welcome drink, and is just one of the many incredible events the Natural History Museum runs throughout the year. The venue is perfect for all types of events including meetings and conferences, weddings, Christmas and summer parties and outdoor gatherings.
