Newcastle’s City Library will come alive as it hosts an amazing night of performance to celebrate this year’s Late Shows which take place over the weekend of Friday, 18 and Saturday, 19 May.
The city centre landmark will be brought to life on Saturday, 19 May from 7 to 11pm when its secrets will be illustrated through contemporary dance.
Tours of the building will see some of its behind-the-scenes work being described by the dancers of Dance City.
Library staff will also be on hand to talk about the different parts of the building and the stories behind its design.
David Fay, City Libraries’ Manager, said: “We are please to be involved in Late Shows once again and are looking forward to welcome everyone to our library during this important date on the region’s cultural calendar. Our event will be a unique opportunity to see what goes on at the city library and highlights the areas the public rarely get the chance to see.”
He added: “The performances by Dance City is an exciting way we can show what goes on in making sure the library continues to serve the people of Newcastle and the region.”
The Late Shows is an inspiring, after dark programme of events and exhibitions centring on the cultural venues in NewcastleGateshead that are usually closed in the evening. The Late Shows began in 2007 and now, in its sixth year, has doubled in size since its beginning.
Museums, galleries and visitor attractions stay up late to encourage people to do something cultural with their evening - in celebration of the international event ‘Museums at Night’.
