What you need to know!

We've teamed up with the Natural History Museum to give five families the chance of winning a private viewing of the Natural History Museum’s new exhibition Life in the Dark and meet their scientists.

Leave daylight behind in this adventure into dark habitats. Meet creatures that thrive at night, in pitch black caves and the deep sea. Encounter live Mexican blind cavefish and surround yourself in the glow of a bioluminescent display.

We’re giving away five pairs of adult tickets and you can bring your children for free. What’s more you’ll get to meet one of their researchers responsible for the exhibition and go on a behind the scenes Spirit Collection Tours.

Winners will join the Natural History Museum on Monday 23rd July before the Museum opens at 9am and meet our researchers behind the exhibition.
