The Late Shows 2019

About

A firm favourite in the NewcastleGateshead calendar, The Late Shows – supported by The Biscuit Factory – is a free late-night culture crawl taking place in NewcastleGateshead over the weekend of Friday 17 - Saturday 18 May 2019.

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.

Full details are now available on the website www.thelateshows.org.uk

Don't miss the Twi-Lates! 

On both nights there will also be Twi-Lates from 4-7pm, with events targeted at 12-17 year olds as independent visitors or with their families.

Seven Stories – visitors can singalong at Beccy Owen’s Pop-Up Choir - a vibrant, welcoming and fun-filled singing workshop featuring a fine selection of unforgettable 80s hits.
