On arrival at the Science Museum, guests were greeted by an acrobatic performance in a human-size birdcage suspended from the rafters of the Energy Hall, by Full Circle.

The Natural History museum’s Darwin Centre and adjoining courtyard were transformed into a carnival-themed Rio party, while the V&A embraced a 'celebration of summer' in the John Madejski Garden with champagne, cocktails and live food prepared at a chef’s table by the recipe. 

The caterer Rhubarb created a bespoke three-course menu for the carnival-themed party, which included canapés, followed by a Brazilian barbecue with a raw, smoked and charred fish and ceviche stall. There was also a series of interactive dessert stations, where guests toasted coconut-incrusted marshmallows and fruit before indulging in a selection of mini desserts.

Entertainment included pyrotechnic artists and a samba band.
