We talk a lot about the importance of strong images to use when raising awareness of your events programming.

However, if you’re writing press releases to promote your Museums at Night events, including great quotes, whether from a curator, a volunteer or a performer about to star in your event really helps bring your words to life, and makes it more likely that your local papers will write more about what you’re planning.

With this in mind, we’re happy to provide personalised quotes about your Museums at Night events for your press releases, explaining what makes your event special and how it ties in with the national festival.

For example, here’s a quote I gave Robert Burns Birthplace Museum to use when promoting their Burns Heid Inn time-travelling pub quiz:

The Museums at Night festival aims to inspire new visitors to discover the fascinating arts and heritage highlights on their doorstep, and the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum’s creative event programming is always a highlight. It’s fantastic that visitors will be able to travel back in time to experience this historic cottage from the era when it was a pub. Combine that with live music, a few drinks and of course a pub quiz, and it’ll really be a night to remember!

If you’d like a special quote for your press releases, please email [email protected] and let me know any particular aspects of your event you’d like me to focus on – anything new and unique, something you’re particularly proud of or think will really appeal to your target audience.
