Experience London's most unique Friday night out! Dinosaurs included :-)

Come and enjoy the Natural History Museum's exhibitions in the evening, meet friends, have a drink, have a bite to eat.

Visit their engrossing and atmospheric Dinosaur gallery. Or take part in one of their monthly discussions.

It's FREE to attend the After Hours evenings. But you have to buy tickets for the exhibitions and some special events. To avoid disappointment, please book your tickets in advance.

Please note that no other areas of the Museum are open at After Hours (don't worry though, the dinosaurs bit is open and I know that's really what you all wanna see!)

We will meet at the Red Bar in Fossil Way between 6pm and 6.30pm.

We will meet again at Red Bar in Fossil Way at 7.30-7.45pm to collect later arrivals.

Then we will meet in the Gold Bar in Central Hall at 9.45pm for a final gathering together.

At 10.30 pm when the Museum closes, we will head to a pub (which I'll decide and post later, just cos the pubs are mentally heaving on Friday nights round there, so I'll try and book a private spot for us if I can.)

As usual, hosts' numbers will be emailed to attendees 2 days before the event.
