Late night Victorian Sensation in the National Museum of Scotland

SCOTTISH band Honeyblood and electro duo Bdy Prts have been chosen to perform at Museum Lates at The National Museum of Scotland next month.

This year’s theme is Victorian Sensation, complementing the Museum’s current exhibition, Photography: A Victorian Sensation, which runs until 22 November 2015.

Honeyblood supported the FooFighters at Murrayfield and are on the sold-out bill for Edinburgh’s Hogmanay Concert in the Gardens.

Among the evening’s other attractions will be Dr Matt Lodder who will tell stories of the birth of professional tattooing in Britain from rakish aristocrats and syphilitic sailors to adventurous debutantes and crowned heads of state who all marked their bodies with remarkable images drawn from the Victorian cultural age.

Magician Luke Eaton will be showing off his unique style of magic.

The Red Door Gallery team in Hawthornden Court will create your very own Victorian-style Thaumatrope.

Fresh Air FM will bring a Silent Disco.

The Museum Lates are sponsored by RBS. Bruce Cook, head of sponsorship at RBS, said: “RBS Museum Lates is well established now as a hot ticket for a night out in the capital, giving people the opportunity to interact with the museum in new ways.

“We’re very pleased to be supporting such an innovative approach to the arts and culture which also helps nurture up-and-coming Scottish talent from a wide variety of creative arts and enterprises.”

Museum Lates takes place on Friday 13th November.

The National Museum of Scotland is the most popular museum in the country outside London according to the Association of Leading Visitor Attractions  with over 7.5 million visits since it reopened in 2011.
