We’ve had an offer of a live performance event to take place at your venue during Museums at Night 2010, from Tom Searle of Show and Tell. He says:
I’ve previously created daring and innovative comedy and poetry events at the Museum Of London and Docklands Museum. All have received a great deal of press coverage and the most recent (at MOL, July 2009), was attended by 1100 people for a 2 hour event.
My proposal for Museums At Night 2010 is to gather a team of talented writers to write a story inspired by someone or something they’ve seen within the chosen museum. Each chapter will be handed over to a performer – comedians, musicians, storytellers, poets, film makers – to interpret. The museum will be descended into darkness and the audience will be invited to navigate the museum torch in hand. Coming across a different performer along each step of the way, they’ll not only witness each chapter of the story piece-by-piece, but will explore and engage with the museum in an intimate and exciting way.
I’m willing to consider any museum and adapt the premise to suit the needs of the project and venue.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested. Thanks!
And a final reminder from me before we break up for Christmas: if you’d like your Museums at Night events to be part of our first PR push into long lead women’s, local interest, and history and heritage magazines, you’ll need to enter them into the Culture24 database by January 8th 2010.

Season’s greetings to everyone – wishing you all a peaceful Christmas and a happy New Year!
