Museums at Night, 11th-14th May 2016
Beginning this Wednesday, museums and galleries across Nottinghamshire will be opening their doors after-hours as part of the national Museums at Night festival. With a special programme of one-off nighttime events, from film-screenings to a choir performance in a Gothic chapel, visitors are invited to see some of the county’s best-loved attractions like never before.
A 45-piece choir will perform in the Gothic chapel in the grounds of Clumber Park while at the Discovery Centre, children can hunt for nocturnal animals. There will also be a chance to step back in time to when Clumber House stood tall with The Imagined Mansion exhibition.
