Museums at Night, the UK’s annual night-time festival of arts, heritage and culture, is pleased to announce its new media partnership with The Times.
The Museums at Night festival offers the chance to experience culture and heritage in a totally unexpected way. Over three nights in May (May 15 – May 17) hundreds of museums, galleries and historic spaces all over the UK will open up late and put on a dazzling array of special night-time events: from unique literary talks in castles to star gazing in historic houses; sleepovers in palaces to city-wide culture crawls; bands playing in amongst museum exhibits to science fiction life drawing in galleries.
The new partnership with The Times includes editorial support for a range of Museums at Nights events and participating artists. In addition, there will be a whole host of Museums at Night ticket offers and competitions offered to Times+ subscribers.
Nick Stockman, Project Director for Museums at Night says, “I’m delighted to announce our partnership with The Times. We are really looking forward to sharing the excitement of the festival and all it has to offer with their readers.”
Alex O’Connell, Arts Editor at The Times says, “I am delighted that we will be partnering up with Museums at Night and look forward to being able to share fantastic access to some of our great museums with readers and Times Plus members.”
Now in its sixth year, the Museums at Night festival ties in with the European initiative La Nuit des Musées. It is run by non-profit cultural publisher Culture24 and designed to attract new audiences into museums and galleries, via a whole range of exciting experiences and events.
