Whether you’re practising your moves or just in the mood to slam dunk the funk, grab a headset, select your tunes and dance until you drop. Entry £2 per person (card payments only)—tickets available in the Exploring Space gallery on the night.

Museum Wonders

Join our curators to uncover the mysteries of objects from the behind the scenes stores and create your own galactic collage from our space related collection.

Future Lates

Each entry in this hugely popular ongoing series of events centres on a different theme: from sex to climate change, from big data to childhood.

Dates to be confirmed.

These themes are subject to change but we can guarantee that each night will be fun and entertaining.
