Museums at Night: Circus Spectacular

Prepare to be amazed by acrobatics and circus performers as they take over the museum’s grand halls. Dress up and entertain your family and friends in our themed photo booth. Run away with the circus by having a go at juggling, tightrope walking, hoops and more. Marvel at ‘Clowns: The Eggs-hibition’, which features stunning costume, film and photos of clowning over the years, and of course, hundreds of clown eggs! Each one is a record of a clown’s unique identity, preserving the unwritten rule that no clown should copy another’s look. Café and shop open throughout the night. Perfect for the whole family. Developed in association with Circomedia, renowned centre for contemporary circus and physical theatre training in the UK.
