Museums at Night

An amazing evening with Simon Mayo and Itch

On Saturday 18 May, Rewards member Sue Cooper joined BBC broadcaster and author, Simon Mayo, at the Royal Institution in London, for an effervescent talk, live experiments, and more.

  • Broadcaster and author Simon Mayo

  • Luxury five-star Corinthia Hotel

  • Interactive talks and demonstrations

  • Simon's second novel – Itch Rocks

Sue discovered what led Simon to write his debut children’s novel, Itch – the first in a fun, gripping series about the adventures and exploits of a science-mad, element-hunting, 14-year-old hero called Itch.

Sue also received signed copies of the Itch books – and will have a character named after her, in Simon’s next Itch book.

Throughout the evening, there were exciting chemistry demonstrations conducted by the Royal Institution experts – plus a private behind-the-scenes, curator-led tour of the museum.

The prize included overnight accommodation at the luxury five-star Corinthia Hotel, in London’s West End – where Sue enjoyed world-class hospitality in stylish surroundings.

 

This incredible prize included:

  • Two free tickets to Simon Mayo’s event at the Royal Institution, with exciting chemistry demonstrations conducted by the experts
  • Meet-and-greet with Simon, to receive signed copies of the Itch books
  • A character named after the prize winner in the next Itch book
  • Two tickets to a special laboratory event in the L’Oreal Young Scientist Centre
  • Private behind-the-scenes, curator-led tour of the Royal Institution
  • Overnight accommodation at the five-star Corinthia Hotel, in London’s West End, plus travel

Here's what Sue had to say about her experience:



Sue Cooper

I was the winner of the AA competition to see Simon Mayo at the Royal Institution, and to spend the night in a 5-star hotel. My friend and I had the most amazing time – the Institution was fantastic – so much history happened there, it was great.

The hotel was simply wonderful – we were made to feel very welcome and the level of comfort was fabulous, as were the food and the spa – I could live like that every weekend!

Thank you once again for a great weekend.
