Natural History Museum says goodbye to Dippy

The Natural History Museum hosted a New Year celebration for 600 revellers to make history and be part of the final event with the iconic Dippy the Diplodocus in the Hintze Hall.

The evening saw indulgent entertainment provided by Guilty Pleasures in the form of classic pop ballads while the Dinosaurs gallery formed a well themed break out space.

The Hinzte Hall will now be closed until August as Dippy departs ready for a UK tour in 2018 and the installation of the dramatic diving Blue Whale skeleton commences. The museum’s wealth of additional spaces are all still available providing the chance for events to be hosted in previously undiscovered locations with a wealth of hidden gems to discover. This includes the majestic North Hall which will only be open for the time of the Hintze Hall closure, presenting the grandeur of Hintze Hall but in a more intimate setting 50 to 250 guests.
