The Harris Museum will be open this evening as part of a free night of entertainment.

Light Night gives residents the chance to explore the Harris after work or school.

The building will be open from 5pm to 10pm to view exhibitions and also listen to music from the Company of Voyces Choir and the Worldwise Samba drummers.
