City Library will come alive in a night of performance on Saturday 19 May to celebrate this year’s Late Shows. From 7pm to 11pm tours of the building will be illustrated through contemporary dance performances by Dance City, including a peak behind the scenes.
Library staff will also be on hand to talk about the different parts of the building and the stories behind its design. There is no need to book for this event but places are limited. The tours start at 7pm, 8pm, 9pm and 10pm.
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. Find out more about the Late Shows.
The Late Shows marks the international event ‘Museums at Night’, which takes place across Europe.
