Had the world not fallen apart then this weekend would have seen Late Shows 2020 taking over Newcastle and Gateshead’s lovely museums, galleries, studios and heritage attractions. Even though it is unable to take place it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t celebrate it virtually this Friday (15th May) from 7-11pm.

To join in, Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums, who are behind the event, are asking that you share photos or videos of your The Late Shows best bits from previous years on twitter and Instagram and tag #LoveLateShows. They will also be sharing lots of images too.

And because it’s as much about the present as it is the past, they are also asking you to share photographs of your celebration on Friday night. They’ve teamed up with Hepple gin and Luxe Magazine to create a special Late Shows cocktail to give the night some flavour and have created a nice little playlist to soundtrack your shenanigans.

Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums are also asking for donations so that they can keep connecting millions of people in the North East and beyond with art, culture and heritage during and after the lockdown. To donate, click here.
