Light Night - 19th May

On Friday 19th May Liverpool opens its doors for the eighth annual Light Night.

A one night arts festival, featuring a city-wide culture crawl for all age groups featuring all manners of different offerings and ensuring that all that take part will certainly see the city in a new light.

This year is the BME's first LightNight in Liverpool and it will be taking part in a way that gives the people of Liverpool a fantastic snapshot of what this permanent exhibition has to offer the city.

From 5pm-10pm the BME will be inviting the LightNight revellers to come and have a look for free at what's going on behind those big doors at the Cunard Building on Liverpool's famous waterfront. The theme for this year's Light Night is 'TIME' and with the BME's journey of British music taking place through a timeline from 1945 right up until the present day, it couldn't be more suitable.

The BME will be celebrating the era in British music that was dubbed by many as the second 'Summer of Love', the ravey days of Acid House.

The main galleries of the exhibition will be closed off with the main activity happening in it's central space in front of the stage. 

We are inviting visitors of all ages (this will certainly be family friendly) to come and experience the visuals of the era projected all around the beautiful setting of the Cunard Building whilst enjoying the soundtrack of this influential and exciting genre. 

Glow-sticks and UV face-painting will also help our visitors really get into the mood.

Drinks will be served in the Star Cafe until closing.

The perfect opportunity to preview the British Music Experience.

Free entry from 5pm - 10pm on Friday 19th May. Please note, visitors will have access to the main space, Star Cafe and shop only. The zones featuring the artefacts and the Gibson Interactive Studio will not be accessible.
