Let's make predictable events a thing of the past

It's time to cast aside any dusty preconceptions of what a museum-based event would look like. The UK has some of the most modern and fascinating museums in the world, and there's huge untapped potential for event planners to use these unique and unusual venues to their advantage.

Without a doubt, the grand and iconic entrance hall of the Natural History Museum featuring its legendary exhibits, the rolling lawns surrounding Beaulieu Motor Museum or IWM Duxford’s hundreds of aircraft will make for an unparalleled dramatic backdrop for any event.

Matching up your brand with the ideal venue can be tricky, however, with museums it can often be easy to find the perfect fit for your event theme, whether it’s science and industry, advertising and media, transport and technology, you’re not just limited to general history.
