Gather your troops and join us for a night of fun, frivolity and some monkeying around. Whether you’re displaying your dance moves, sampling a tasty insect snack, or showing off your puzzle solving abilities like the remarkable homo sapien you are there’s primate pleasing activities for everyone at this Museum Late.
Our headliners for the night are Glasgow five-piece WHITE - a hurtling juggernaut of synth stabs, razor-sharp guitars and even sharper attire. A cacophony of pink noise, huge drums, infectious hooks and an explosive frontman channelling Jacques Brel & Nick Cave. They are turning heads with debut song "Living Fiction", the NME calling it "the kind of full-blown space wig-out Bowie would be proud of".
Support for the night takes the form of Be Charlotte, fronted by teenaged queen of good vibes Charlotte Brimner. Winners of the 2016 Scottish Alternative Music Award for Best Electronic Act the pitch perfect songstress has quickly become synonymous with endearing charisma that is displayed in her captivating live show.
Walk into dappled light and hanging vines as the Grand Gallery takes on a jungle feeling for the night. Look up to catch aerial dance theatre company All or Nothing making an appearance in the leaves above and get into the swing of things with Fresh Air FM DJs bringing the beats between acts.
All ticketholders will be given the territory of night-time galleries to explore, and those who purchase a combo ticket can also visit the fantastic Monkey Business exhibition on the night.
A range of refreshments including wine, beer and cocktails along with soft drinks and food-on-the-go will be available from our bars in the Grand Gallery and Hawthornden Court. Or take a seat in the Museum Brasserie, open from 17:30 on the night for delectable dining. Call 0131 247 4040 in advance to be sure of a table.
