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 12, 19 and 26 August 2016

Ten innovative new galleries will set a dramatic scene to complement this year’s performances. Open from July 2016, these spaces will showcase over 3,000 extraordinary objects from the worlds of fashion, applied arts, design, science and technology.

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