Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year

Running from the 24th November until the 17th February, this touring exhibition from the Natural History Museum will present thought-provoking images which provide an insight into the beauty of nature.

Each year, 1,000s of entries are received and judged by an international jury of experts, and photos by both the winners and runners-up for the 2012 competition will be on display.

Global to Local: Histories 

Available to view from the 14th December until the 27th May, Global to Local: Histories will explore themes by artists who are responding to urbanisation, tradition, identity, globalisation and migration.

Pharaoh: King of Egypt

This exhibition features highlights from the British Museum’s collection of ancient Egyptian objects, on show between the 16th March and the 21st July.

It will showcase examples of sculpture, jewellery, palace ornamentation, papyri and funerary objects.  

Empire: Roman Power & People

Combining objects of Roman, Romano-British and Romano-Egyptian material, this exhibit will explore the story of the Roman Empire and its impact both in Britain and the east.

Empire: Roman Power & People will be running from the 20th September 2013 until the 12th January 2014.
