The new Flett Theatre is the only event space open during the day at the museum. The purpose-built, auditorium-style theatre can host conferences, talks and training days and features a private foyer for registration and refreshments for delegates. During breaks it offers the opportunity to explore the nearby galleries and check out the exhibits.
Audiovisual facilities are available to hire including in-built microphones, an LCD projector, HD cameras, Blu-ray and DVD playback for film screening, wireless and lapel microphones as well as audio playback.
Lucy Meehan, senior event manager at Natural History Museum, said: "The Flett Theatre is a traditional event space, offering excellent conferencing facilities. As the rest of the museum closes to the public, organisers can expand their programme into the evening with a private viewing of an exhibition or even a drinks reception and dinner in one of the magnificent spaces.
"With our dedicated in house event team and extensive list of suppliers we are able to work with organisers to create bespoke events that will not be forgotten."
