Three interesting new reports by Culture24 (UK) focus on the role and impact of Museum Lates on the night-time economy:
- A Culture of Lates, funded by Arts Council England, focuses on the UK.
- An International Culture of Lates, takes an international perspective.
- The Late Like A Local report, sponsored by Airbnb, studies the role Lates play in cultural tourism.
And here is the Executive Summary.
“The reports reveal the scale of after-hours museum and gallery openings and events in the UK; why venues do, and don’t, open after hours; what kinds of events they offer; where the hot and cold spots are in the UK and much more about the role Lates have in the context of night-time economy issues. The research also tackles how Lates can make a contribution to diversifying the night-time economy and helping UK towns and cities provide a more balanced evening cultural offer.” (Culture24)
