Culture Night 2018 at BEES:

17 Sep 2018

Culture night will take place on Friday 21st September and, as usual, BEES has a spectacular event planned.

This year's BEES Culture Night event combines many of the elements that have made the BEES event a Culture Night favourite while introducing some exciting, new and interactive science activities for young and old.

You can get up close and personal with everything from creepy crawlies to sharks to gems and feathered dinosaurs! Feel free to touch and feel some rare and valuable specimens from our collections, including hedgehogs, shark jaws, lava, amazing plants and fossils.

Visitors will also get a chance to take a closer look in our Micro Lab, where you can use microscopes, magnifying glasses and zoomboxes to investigate everything from tiny creatures living in the River Lee, to grains of sand, to plant cells. Everyone can find out what it’s like to be a scientist in our Meet the Scientist room and don’t forget to visit the albatross photo booth, test water samples, watch plants drink and take part in a fossil dig!

This event runs from 5pm-8pm sharp on Friday 21st September.
