The event is part of the Museum's exhibition We are extInked, open until 4 December, documenting the arts and ecology project, extInked, for which drawings of endangered British species were tattooed onto 100 willing volunteers, turning them into living, breathing ambassadors for their chosen species.

Great idea in the style of Friday night lates at the V&A and The Natural History Museum... I would prefer Friday to Saturday, and some nice well prepared foodie stuff would be perfect
