Natural History Museum is giving delegates the chance to embark on a virtual reef dive around the venue as its newest exhibition “Coral Reefs: Secret Cities of the Sea” will be offered as an additional venue space to event organisers from Friday 27th March 2015. Coral Reefs, which opens 27th March and runs until 13th September, presents a spectacular marine life gallery and invites guests to meet creatures and discover plants from diverse coral habitats including coral collected firsthand by Charles Darwin, a venomous blue-ringed octopus and a gigantic Turbinaria coral. As with the Wildlife Photographer of the Year gallery, Coral Reefs will be available to hire as an additional venue space to combine with the other permanent event spaces in the museum. With a recommended capacity of 150 guests at a time Coral Reefs will provide organisers with the perfect opportunity to enhance their events with this fascinating exhibition and virtual dive.
