How does Culture24 support your Museums at Night event?
We often form partnerships with external organisations such as the Reading Agency to offer joint opportunities, such as the chance to host an author talk as part of your Museums at Night event.
The best way to find out about new partnerships and promotional opportunities is to join our mailing list to receive our email newsletters.

Is there a deadline I need to register my event by?
Although you can register your Museums at Night events in our database right up until the festival in May, if you leave it that late you’ll miss out on a lot of marketing and publicity. The three deadlines are:
Friday 13 February: your event listing will be included in all of our PR pushes, including the press releases we send out to long lead magazines.
Friday 20 March: your event listing will be included in our March outreach.
Friday 24 April: This is the final deadline for your event listing to be included in our press releases.
