This site is a hub for listings and resources relating to Lates – evening events in museums, galleries, libraries, archives and historic houses.


On this site you will find:

Year-round Lates Listings

We publish listings for UK-based Lates events throughout the year. From tours and talks to live music and light installations, you’ll discover a range of fantastic activities at cultural venues.


Museums at Night

We coordinate the Museums at Night festival, which sees venues across the UK open their doors for exciting evening events and spectacular night-time displays.  The next festival will take place from 31 October – 2 November 2019. You can search for festival listings on this site, too.

Resources for the Sector

We publish news and resources tailored to museum Lates events and programming. We also run conferences, offer consultancy and deliver other Lates projects.


Emerge is the new Lates festival coming to London in September 2019. Led by Culture24, Emerge aims to inspire new generations to fall in love with museums by turning audiences’ expectations of what museums are like, and who they are for, upside-down. The festival will use a one-ticket model that gives attendees access to all events on a given night. Find more information below and contact Nick Stockman to discuss sponsorship opportunities.

Say Hello

All of this is brought to you by Culture24, the charity supporting arts and heritage organisations to connect with audiences and achieve things they couldn’t do on their own. We are an Arts Council England Sector Support Organisation for 2018-2022.
