10th May 2011, 05:38 PM
An extra incentive for anyone trying to decide whether to come to Newcastle (which has a fantastic array of venues taking part - http://www.thelateshows.org.uk/home.html) or to stay late in their local town this weekend:

Museums at Night 2011

Museums at Night, the annual after-hours celebration of arts, history and heritage, will take place this year over the weekend of Friday 13th to Sunday 15th May. 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. For more information please visit www.museumsatnight.org.uk or contact rosie@culture24.org.uk.

Dissapointing that none of the major museums in South Wales will be taking part it looks fun

Hope you enjoy
