The Natural History Museum, Science Museum and Victoria and Albert (V&A) Museum held 'SW7' on Tuesday night (5 July), the group's sixth collaborative industry showcase event. Held at all three museums, the event welcomed event professionals for a night of food, drinks and entertainment.
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.
