Hertford Museum at night!

Monday, May 17th, 2010

On Saturday 15th May, Hertford Museum opened up its doors during the evening to take part in the national event ‘Museums at Night’. 

We wanted to make sure that those people who don’t get time to visit the museum in the day or at weekends can enjoy Hertford Museum during the twilight hours.  

 The museum was open from 6pm – 9pm and visitors could wander around the displays whilst enjoying a glass of wine, and listening to live acoustic music by Verity Sessions, Lucy Sessions and Joe Wulf.

A great night was had by all!
