Fancy something a little different for a Friday night? Wind down with a craft beer at Nostell, enjoy a live DJ set, get creative and explore the house after hours on this special adults-only event, as part of Museums at Night.
To launch Nostell’s brand new creative Workshop, we’re hosting a pop-up bar courtesy of Wakefield Beer Exchange and a vinyl DJ set presented by Long Division. Relax to a mix of electronica and soundscape works spanning a range of decades and styles, including special samples of ticking clocks to echo Nostell’s Clock Work celebrations this year. Don’t miss your chance to see John Harrison’s masterpiece and the contemporary art installation of 2,000 clocks, ‘Harrison’s Garden’ by twilight. If you’re inspired to get creative yourself you can make your own clock jewellery to take home or join artist Mitchell Robinson for a clock printing demo. No booking needed, just remember to bring cash for the bar and head to the website for admission prices (National Trust members free). Doors open at 6 with last admission at 8.
Think it’s too far to come? Nostell’s just a 25 minute walk from Fitzwilliam Train Station or a 15 minute bus ride from the centre of Wakefield — jump on the 497 or the 223, they stop just outside the gates. Plan your bus journey here planner.wymetro.com/lts/#/travelInfo
