Jellyfish enthusiasts are invited to a private after-hours evening on Wednesday, May 3, 2017 at SEA LIFE London, where they can enjoy a jellyfish masterclass in the aquarium’s newest experience, Ocean Invaders: Enter the World of Jellyfish.


The event will take place from 7–9.30pm, when SEA LIFE’s in-house experts will welcome guests to the behind-the-scenes area or the so-called ‘jelly-nursery’ zone where baby jellies are being bred before moving into the Ocean Invaders experience. The new exhibition is interactive, sensory-led and divided in to three areas – ‘Discover’, ‘Understand’ and ‘Wow’- where visitors can observe over 5,000 jellyfish.

Visitors will have the unique opportunity to spend time with SEA LIFE’s Senior Curator James Robson and understand the lifecycle of these mesmerising species, as well as an insight into how they survive without having a brain, heart and eyes.

Aside from leading the SEA LIFE London team of jellyologists to breed more than 10,000 jellyfish on-site, James is also in the process of obtaining a PhD in Jellyfish Swarms and Shark Behaviour. On the night he will be on-hand to talk to guests about how the team take care of such magnificent creatures, what their future in the eco-system looks like, as well as sharing his prediction of the massive jellyfish swarm heading to UK shores this summer…

All profits raised from the event will be donated to the SEA LIFE Trust – a registered charity dedicated to protecting our oceans and the amazing wildlife that calls them home.

This is the third in a series of events which SEA LIFE London has hosted and will be running throughout the year. A.Q.U.A Nights (Artistic, Quirky, Unusual Activities) will give guests a chance to experience the attraction in a different way and raise money to help protect our incredible oceans.
