The Late Show 2011

The Late Show

The Late Shows is an inspiring, after dark programme of events and exhibitions centering on the cultural venues in NewcastleGateshead that are usually closed in the evening. The Late Shows began in 2007 and now, in its fifth year, has almost doubled in size since its beginning.

Museums, galleries and visitor attractions stay up late to encourage people to do something cultural with their evening – in celebration of the international event ‘Museums at Night’.  web site The Late Shows
