Including a science show offering gruesome forensics, an all-night monster movie marathon, dinosaur life drawing classes and finishing with a midnight feast of edible insects (yum?!). Then before you know it you’ll be settling down for a snooze under the iconic Diplodocus skeleton, Dippy. Places are limited, so be sure to nab your spot quickly.

Drawing over 300 years of work by professional and amateur artists, trace the history of flower drawing in Britain through the many classic pieces, from the well-known Georg Dionusius Ehret to contemporary artists including Margaret Stones, come gaze over the glorious botanical art-works.
