Museums and attractions in London have been organising sleepovers for kids for a while. Now it's time for the adults to get a piece of the action.
Dinosnores for Grown Ups, Natural History Museum
Ever wondered what happens after dark at the Natural History Museum? Now you can find out at Dino Snores for Grown Ups, exclusive adult-only sleepovers at the museum.
As well as exploring the galleries and temporary exhibitions, the evening features a delicious three-course dinner, live music, edible insect tasting, an all-night monster movie marathon and activities such as a science show, stand-up comedy and a drinks tasting session.
There's a cash bar providing further drinks and nibbles, so all you need to enjoy the night is an enquiring mind, a sense of adventure and a sleeping bag.
When: 24 March, 19 May
Tickets: £130, Members £117

Astronights: Our Experience
Sleeping over at the Science Museum is like the ultimate Lates event.
If you've ever enjoyed a Late at Science Museum, you'll love this: it's just the same, but so much bigger and better.
You get to take things home, enjoy fascinating lectures and explore the museum with around 100 other people — this is a very thin spread and the closest most people will ever come to having the museum to themselves.
The price also includes free dinner and breakfast the next day and a midnight movie screening.
The evening's entertainment lasts a full six hours from start to lights out and we never felt bored as there was always plenty to do.
As you'll be going to bed around 3am, make sure you don't have big plans for the next morning.
The only let down actually comes at the moment of going to sleep. We were supplied with camping mats, but on the hard gallery floor, these just weren't sufficient — it was one of the most restless nights we've ever had.
It's an expensive event and though we loved it, for that kind of money we'd expect to be able to sleep in comfort.
