Plymouth After Dark

A darts player playing in a pub surrounded by a crowd.‘Plymouth After Dark’ is an exciting four year outreach project exploring the range of activities that take place across the city at night.

Our aim is to capture peoples’ stories, collect objects to add to our collections and commission new work.

We’ll be organising and supporting a series of public events where people can share their stories and bring along their memorabilia – helping us to record and reveal a part of the city’s cultural heritage that many of us often take for granted.

‘Plymouth After Dark’ will culminate in an exhibition at The Box, Plymouth after it’s opened in 2020.

To officially launch the ‘Plymouth After Dark’ project we held an evening of music and reminiscing inspired by the 1960s in May 2016.

The event featured a talk by local historian Chris Robinson and a two-hour music set by top tribute band ‘The Revolvers’.

It also gave us a chance to chat to all our guests about their recollections from the period, or their fascination with it. Some even got into the spirit of the age by donning suitable outfits or posing in our Photo Booth with some rather groovy backdrops – as you can see in the photo galleries below.
