Celebrating the life of Philip Astley, the creator of the modern Circus with family friendly activities. As part of the National 'Museums at Night' Events.
"Museums at Night next explodes into life from Wednesday 16 to Saturday 19 May 2018 and the fun is repeated every Halloween.
Twice a year, not-for-profit cultural publisher Culture24 invites all UK museums, galleries, libraries and heritage sites to throw open their doors after hours to showcase their treasures in unexpected ways.
Museums at Night is an opportunity for museums and galleries to come together around a single, simple campaign that is attractive to venues, audiences and the media. It’s a social experience, where visitors can get involved, delve deeper into fascinating subjects and perhaps enjoy a cocktail or two with friends."
