The after hours culture crawl which attracts thousands of visitors to cultural attractions and venues across Newcastle and Gateshead will be back in 2024.

Organised by Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums and now in its 16th year, the two-day event sees participating venues open well past closing time for a weekend of special activities.

The idea is to give people to the chance to soak up a wide range of taster experiences across the 40+ participating places.

Museums, galleries, studio collectives and heritage hot spots come together under a fetching Late Shows umbrella to put on a programme of events and activities including behind-the-scenes tours, workshops, performances, talks and parties.

This year, five new commissions – courtesy of first time sponsor, Creative Central NCL, the five year project which aims to support independent artists and creative businesses in a defined area of Newcastle city centre – will be unveiled as part of proceedings.

As has become the form in recent years, the Friday night (May 17) will see the action concentrated in Newcastle’s Ouseburn before it spreads across Newcastle and Gateshead the following night.

To keep updated with plans for The Late Shows 2024, keep your eyes on the website.
