Our Culture Night programme for 2023 is inspired by the exhibition ‘Night’s Candles are Burnt Out’. The museum will be a hive of activity with events and activities for all ages, including performances, mini-lectures, screenings, interactive experiences and technology demos. Culture Night will also mark the opening of “Night’s Candles Are Burnt Out”, an exhibition that shows how we can help fight back against Climate Change.

Culture Night @ The Hunt will also be running in conjunction with The Polish Arts Festival.
