Enjoy a unique flavour of the Fringe and explore the museum after hours across three exhilarating nights, each with hand-picked performers, music, comedy, bars and entry to our exhibition Celts, organised with the British Museum.

Friday 26 August (This event is now sold out).

Showcasing the very best of the Fringe, the line-up of performance, comedy, music, and dance will change each week creating a never-to-be-repeated experience for audiences. In addition to the programmed acts, Fringe-goers can put on their best poses at a themed selfie studio, explore a range of hands-on activities around the museum, and enjoy pop-up bars, food stalls and late night opening at the Museum’s Brasserie.

Ten innovative new galleries will set a dramatic scene to complement this year’s performances and entry to Celts is included in your ticket. Celts is a major exhibition, organised in partnership with the British Museum. 

Guest programmed by the festival gurus at The List, each night of this adults-only extravaganza offers a different take on the Fringe.
