Museums at Night, the UK’s after-hours festival of arts, culture and heritage returns from Wednesday 16 – Saturday 19 May 2018. 328+ events are taking place after-hours at museums, galleries, libraries, archives and heritage sites.
The festival brings new audiences to cultural venues through extended opening times, exciting activities and spectacular night-time displays.
May 2018 highlights
You can catch outstanding dance and costume designs at Bristol Museum and Art Gallery before paying a visit to the Grayson Perry exhibition. Visit Handel & Hendrix in London to celebrate the city’s forgotten history with an evening of live music, performances and activities. Head to Lightnight Liverpool for a range of interactive displays, including a light and sound installation in response to Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. If you’re in Newcastle and Gateshead, join The Late Shows, a culture crawl shining a light on over 60 venues across the area.
What’s next if you work in an arts or heritage organisation?
A Culture of Lates is the first sector conference devoted to after-hours programming and builds on Culture24’s recently published research of the same name. If you’re a cultural programmer, producer, researcher or night-time economy person, join us at the National Gallery on Friday 1 June to hear from a fantastic line up of speakers.
