About Museums at Night

In May 2014 museums, galleries and historic spaces across the UK held around 700 night-time events as part of the three-day Museums at Night festival.

Organised by Culture 24 and the Arts Council England, people experienced culture in an unexpected way with after-hours visits to hundreds of venues.

This included English National Ballet’s Second Breath at Imperial War Museum North in Manchester, 100 nudes photographed at Folkestone Beach by Spencer Tunick, and a performance by electro-pop duo Public Service Broadcasting at the RAF Museum in Hendon.

The public was also encouraged to get involved by making their own recreations of famous artworks as part of the VanGoYourself project.
