Unfortunately, The Late Shows has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic but will return in 2021.

A firm favourite in the NewcastleGateshead calendar, The Late Shows sponsored by The Biscuit Factory is a free late-night culture crawl taking place in NewcastleGateshead across a weekend in mid-May each year.

Experience an after-hours festival of culture and events across Ouseburn on the Friday and in central Newcastle and Gateshead on the Saturday. The perfect event for families with an exclusive set of events for Twi-Lates - those independent teens who want to enjoy the buzz of The Late Shows without their families!

During The Late Shows, museums, galleries, studio collectives and landmark historical buildings come together to offer visitors one-off events including hands-on workshops, behind-the-scenes tours, performances and parties. It's all about encouraging people to do something cultural with their evening in celebration of the national event Museums at Night.

The Late Shows began in 2007 and has now more than quintupled in size! In the first year, 14 venues took part, rising to more than 70 in 2016. Venues at last year's Late Shows recorded over 40,000 visits across the weekend.

The main objective of The Late Shows is to encourage people to visit a cultural venue that they may not have visited before. In particular, our aim is to attract a younger audience and share loyal audiences between venues.

Full details will be announced nearer the time.
