Burlington House Courtyard Late

See the Burlington House Courtyard like never before and discover the six learned societies that reside there. Their aim is to further the study of art, history and science, and share it with audiences around the world. Come and experience our annual Courtyard Summer Late. During this event, visitors will be introduced to our special collections as we explore the theme of ELEMENTS through the study of art, history and science …

Each Society has a unique programme to offer audiences of all ages, with great food and drink on offer, too! Find out more details about the other societies' events here.

Here at the Linnean Society, join us for an evening of detective work to discover how life survives in the most extreme environments.

Discovery Room:

Experience life in Movile Cave in Romania. But be careful if you don't guess which element is lacking in this environment, you may be locked in forever.... (or just the 5 minutes the activity lasts for)

Meeting Room:

Learn about carnivorous plants and how they are specifically adapted to live in poor nutrient soils.


Come play Games of Life with us. We will be looking at how different organisms have adapted to living in extreme environments. We will also have The Dinner Lab serving carbon mitigation mojitos.

  • This event is free and open to all.
  • Don't forget to see what the other Burlington House courtyard Societies are up to
