museums at night
I am lucky enough to live in London, where the sheer number of museums, galleries and theatres mean it's almost impossible not to find yourself visiting places from time to time.
I have been working on the Museum's public engagement since 2009; we now offer a diverse range of activities and in two years our visitor figures have doubled and we have built a database of loyal supporters who regularly attend our events.
Events like Museums at Night give us the opportunity to collaborate on projects like this with other organisations such as the local university.
Museums at Night is the annual after-hours festival of culture and heritage, which explodes into life each year on the weekend nearest to International Museums Day. This year it will take place on Friday 18, Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 May - and it looks set to be the biggest ever, with over 500 events already registered!
