Canon joined forces with Red Bull to turn an unlikely venue into a skatepark. For one night only, the National History Museum in London was fitted with ramps, rails and jumps so that a group of female skaters from all over the world could show off their latest tricks. 

Not very often will you hear of a museum allowing people to skate inside it. Usually, skaters are banned from flat public areas or find themselves having to navigate anti-skate studs so the National History Museum is the last place on earth you’d expect them to be allowed. With so many historical and delicate artifacts to watch out for, skating inside the NHM is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and the whole evening was captured using some of the best Canon cameras
