Would you like an author to speak at your Museums at Night event?

Building on the success of our Museums at Night event package ideas (we’ve already had lots of responses to our sleepover subsidy opportunity), we’re delighted to offer UK museums, galleries, libraries, archives and heritage sites the chance to host an author for your Museums at Night 2012 event!

Culture24 has teamed up with some of the UK’s top publishing houses, via The Reading Agency, to offer venues the chance to work with authors on events for Museums at Night.

A range of writers promoting newly published books are available for evening Q&A sessions or talks, followed by a book signing, during the weekend of 18th – 20th May 2012.

The publishers will not be asking for an appearance fee, but a contribution towards expenses may be negotiated under some circumstances.

Download the full list of available authors and information about their books here.

If you’re interested in running a Museums at Night event involving an author, please contact Nick Stockman at nick@culture24.org.uk or call 01273 623279, telling him which author you’d like, by the end of the day on Friday 9th March.

NB. This opportunity was announced in our Museums at Night e-newsletter first thing this morning. Do you receive this e-bulletin, which includes news of partnerships and promotional opportunities your venue may like to take advantage of? If not, you’re missing out!
