The wonderful BBC History Magazine Guide to Museums at Night will be on its way to the printers very soon! It’s a thing of beauty: an A5 size, full-colour glossy brochure with 16 pages of photos and writing.
You can order your Guides here up until 11am on Wednesday 4th April.
The Guide picks out event highlights by theme, giving a flavour of the diversity of events that will be on offer across the UK over Museums at Night weekend. The idea of this persuasive text is that members of the public who pick it up will be compelled to head to the Museums at Night website to find out what’s on near them.
Every reader of BBC History Magazine will receive the Guide, but we’re having 50,000 extras printed to send out to you all. For the last couple of years, this has been a key part of the Museums at Night festival marketing at a local level.
The venues who took boxes of brochures to distribute reported great success from putting them out in their own foyers and cafes, local libraries, bookshops, theatres, cafes, bars and supermarkets.
You know better than we do where people in your town are likely to pick up flyers, leaflets and brochures – and here’s ready-made high-quality printed publicity, at no cost to you, for you to make the most of in your community!
If your venue is running a Museums at Night event and you don’t fill in the form, we’ll automatically send you a box of 100 brochures. However, if you can take more than this please use the form to let us know by Wednesday 4th April, as you won’t be able to ask for more later.
Alternatively, if for some reason you can’t put any brochures out, please fill in the form to let us know so we don’t send you unnecessary copies.
Last year it was really heartening to see many venues who weren’t able to run events asking for brochures to put out so that they could support other local venues by promoting the campaign.
