The Natural History Museum

Valentines at the Museum, Cromwell Rd, Kensington, London SW7 5BD; 14th Feb; 19:00-22:30; £35 non members, £31.50 members

Join the Natural History Museum for an evening of romantic fascination covering animal courtship, copulation and everything in between.

Have you ever shown someone how much you like them by choreographing an elaborate dance routine, or by moulting your entire head? This Valentine’s Day, take inspiration from the Museum experts with a drink in hand.

Over the course of the evening you can enjoy:

  • A complimentary ticket to the ever-popular Wildlife Photographer of the Year
  • Beginners salsa classes
  • Conception and Deception: The Strange World of Animal Sex – a talk by Helen Arney, Dr Natalie Cooper and Hana Ayoob (spaces are limited)
  • LGBTQ+ natural history trail
  • Screen printing with exclusive Valentines designs
  • Ask the expert with Curator of Minerals and Gemstones, Robin Hansen
  • Science stations including Lovebugs, Love Birds and You’re my Lobster: the crustacean station

As well as loads of other activities and talks. This is a great opportunity to visit the Museum galleries after hours, all to the soothing rhythm of live music and clinking cocktail glasses.
