Museums at Night: The festival of inspiring after hours cultural events in museums, galleries and heritage sites. Thursday May 16 – Saturday May 18 2013.

The Connect10 online public vote is now open, with 38 venues competing to host ten Museums at Night events featuring ten artists ranging from the Chapman Brothers to Richard Wentworth.


Artist, curator and teacher, Richard Wentworth has helped to alter traditional definitions of both sculpture and photography.

Three historic venues – Gloucester Folk Museum, Shandy Hall in York and Dragon Hall in Norwich – hope to welcome him. But he could be set for a multi-venue night in the north-west, where Manchester Museum, Manchester Art Gallery and the Whitworth Art Gallery are tabling a joint bid.
