The Late Shows 2017

19 - 20 May

The Late Shows – supported by Port of Tyne and Sofa Workshop – is a free annual late-night culture crawl in Newcastle and Gateshead. 2016 saw us host our 10th annual event on 13 and 14 May, 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.
