Events: What's On

You don't need to go all the way to the Antarctica to get a taste of what life is and was like on the frozen continent.  Part of our work in bringing Antarctic heritage to life is either running exclusive events for our members, providing access to other interesting events or simply keeping you up to date on the most exciting Antarctic events taking place.  Discover here the latest polar-themed events taking place around the UK and if you don't see something that takes your fancy this time around, bookmark the page and come back again!

What happened in the incredible Antarctic summer from 2016–17?
