Ghostly goings on dominated our Flight gallery last Friday as over 400 corporate members and members of the museum dusted off their finest spooky outfits to join the Development Team for their annual Halloween Evening. You can tag yourself in images from the night on Facebook.
Guests were greeted by the ghosts of Albert Einstein and Amy Johnson and treated to a delicious Halloween inspired menu of autumnal stews served from witches cauldrons and jellied eyeballs. Our creative choreographer transformed the younger guests into dancing zombies whilst they rocked out to Michael Jackson’s iconic song: Thriller and our resident DJ ensured the tunes flowed all night.
Located in the dark depths of our fourth floor Medical Gallery was the terrifying torch lit treasure hunt where our guests tackled a series of questions with only a torch to unearth the answers. Guests also had the opportunity to make, and understand the scientific properties of, slime as well as create some Halloween inspired fridge magnets and jewellery.
Overall the event was a huge success with over 1,000 members applying for our limited, and much sought after, tickets. The Development Team is already planning next year’s event which looks set to be the biggest yet.
