The ‘Goodbye and Good Luck Dippy’ event utilised multiple museum spaces and saw adults and children alike become immersed and engaged in dinosaur themed ‘Wonder Bays’ in Hintze Hall. Activities including Face Painting; Dino Arts and Crafts; DSI: Dino Scene Investigation; Super Stegasaurus; and ‘How to Draw Amazing Dinosaurs’ – all with contributions from the wonderful Science Educators from the Museum’s Learning Department. The night also included surprise performances from CBeebies Presenter Andy Day; and McFly guitarist-turned children’s author Tom Fletcher. The event was a hugely successful model for engaging new and existing supporters of the Museum, as well allowing patrons and their children to see the NHM in a new and exciting way.
