If you don’t mind a bit of travel on a May evening, you could do much worse than visiting Liverpool during the LightNight Festival. This massive culture crawl is part of Museums at Night, a national event which sees artsy spaces stay open ‘til late. Many venues across the city, including galleries, museums and theatres are taking part, and there will also be things going on in public areas. In total, there will be over 100 events, including large-scale projections, live music, workshops, and street performance. Frequency, at the iconic Cunard Building is an exhibition focussing on the history of Acid House and the ‘second summer of love’. Same as We Ever Were will see performers of all ages from the local community take part in a dance trail through the Albert Dock. An afterparty at Constellations in the fashionable Baltic Triangle district will be a club night mixed with a photo-morphing A/V installation. The full programme can be found on the website below.
