A quick behind-the-scenes update: we’ve been lucky enough to be able to talk about Museums at Night events across the airwaves!
I was surprised and delighted to be interviewed by Radio Belgrade last week, as part of a feature about Nuit des Musees events around Europe.
Yesterday our director Jane, along with representatives from the Churchill Museum & Cabinet War Rooms and the Hovercraft Museum in Lee-on-Solent, were featured on Radio 4’s consumer programme You and Yours – you can listen to it again here.
This morning, Elvie Thompson from Fishbourne Roman Palace spoke about their Ancient Myths and Mosaics event as part of a quiz on BBC Radio Sussex, and we got a mention on the Lauren Laverne show on 6Music!
Tomorrow morning at the shockingly early hour of 6:45 AM you’ll hear me talking about Museums at Night events in Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire on Three Counties Radio. At 11:30 AM I’ll be on BBC Radio Lincolnshire, and at 11:50 AM on BBC Radio Sheffield.
Tomorrow evening, the lovely John Newbigin (chair of Culture24’s board of Trustees) will be talking about Museums at Night on the Claudia Winkleman show on Radio 2.
We also had a mad scramble to find a French speaker from a participating venue who’d be able to discuss their event on a French radio station. Thanks very much to everybody who called up, made suggestions, and tweeted our call for help: we were able to find a French speaker from National Museums Liverpool!
Has anyone else had radio coverage? Let us know!
