Sightsavers' coconut-shy styled 'Elimination Game'.

Sightsavers has organised a free, interactive event at the Science Museum on Wednesday 29 January that invites people to play their Elimination Game and have a unique photo of their eye taken.

Everyone attending the Science Museum Lates event will be able to try their hand at our Elimination Game – a coconut shy-style game where you can physically ‘eliminate’ neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). Visitors will also be able to take home an artistic photo of their eye taken by creative agency EYECONART.

The theme of this month’s Late is ‘Medicine’ to celebrate the opening of the museum’s Medicine: Wellcome Galleries, where you can also see the work of Sightsavers surgeon Samson Lokele. The event will represent some of our NTD programme work funded by UK aid.

The event is for over 18s only and will take place at the Science Museum on Exhibition Road in South Kensington, London. Doors open at 6.45pm and close at 10pm. Admission is free, but a ticket is needed.
