Bristol Museum and Art Gallery... at night
Lauren Laverne, Museums at Night 2011 ambassador and BBC Radio 6 Music DJ and Channel 4’s 10 O Clock Live presenter, says: “Museums at Night is a fantastic initiative that really makes museums and galleries accessible, fun and interesting. It is so important to encourage a new generation to support and embrace arts and heritage in the UK. There are countless great events going on over the Museums at Night weekend – I can’t wait to sample some of them.”
This year’s campaign expects to attract in excess of 100,000 visitors; Sky Arts will be making a documentary film, capturing footage from events across the country and Lauren Laverne is the campaign ambassador.
The campaign is funded by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA) and Arts Council England, and coordinated by Culture24, a registered charity and not-for-profit online publisher, working across the arts, heritage, education, and tourism sectors.
