The Late Shows

About

The Late Shows – supported by Port of Tyne and Sofa Workshop – is a free late-night culture crawl in NewcastleGateshead on Friday 19 and Saturday 20 May 2017. Last year, The Late Shows celebrated their 10th annual event, with over 70 daytime arts, culture and heritage venues staying open late to celebrate.

During The Late Shows, museums, galleries, studio collectives and landmark historical buildings come together to offer visitors one-off events including hands-on workshops, behind-the-scenes tours, performances and parties. It's all about encouraging people to do something cultural with their evening in celebration of the national event Museums at Night.

The Late Shows began in 2007 and has now more than quintupled in size! In the first year, 14 venues took part, rising to more than 70 in 2016. Venues at last year's Late Shows recorded over 40,000 visits across the weekend.

The main objective of The Late Shows is to encourage people to visit a cultural venue that they may not have visited before. In particular, our aim is to attract a younger audience and share loyal audiences between venues.

Keep an eye out for more details coming soon!
