Events: Pick of the week - Over the Edge

Tue to 14 Aug Natural History Museum, London SW7
Skeletons will be rattled this month at London's Natural History Museum with the show Over the Edge: The World - I Didn't Know There Was So Much In It. Animators and performers will take audiences on a journey to the edge of the world. Dramatic lighting effects, music and video projections combine with animated figures to tell tales of trips into uncharted lands. Staged as part of the Museum's major new exhibition "Voyages of Discovery", the show reveals how discoveries by scientists and explorers in the 18th and 19th centuries helped shape our understanding of the world today.

Central Hall, Natural History Museum, Cromwell Road, London SW7 (0171- 938 9090) Tue to 14 Aug, 8.30pm
