Museum at Night Week




Museums at Night, which will explode into life from 17 – 20 May 2017, this is a biannual UK-wide festival which attracts visitors into museums, galleries, heritage sites and historic building by throwing their doors open after hours and putting on special evening events which the whole family can get involved in.

This festival is organised by Brighton based charity Culture24, who are an independent charity their aim is to brings art and heritage organizations together to do amazing things, which they might not normally be able to achieve alone.

Museums at Night is an opportunity for the cultural and heritage sector to come together around a single, simple campaign that is attractive to venues, audiences and the media.

Visitors can choose to visit a range of galleries museums, heritages sites and historic buildings, who open their door after hours to give visitors a unique experience.  These sites host a range of events for all ages, so there is something for everyone from family friendly activities to more scary going ones for the older audience.  Some of the events being hosted are; spooky sleepovers at ‘The novium’, a medieval murder mystery at the ‘Royal Armories’, or a Halloween party at Thelma Hulbert Gallery to list a few.

The festival has grown rapidly since Culture24 took it over in 2009, with over 500 participating venues, 700 events and 100,000 visitors in 2014. The BBC covered the festival in 2014, led by an hour-long programme on the Saturday night hosted by Will Gompertz.
