The Iken Scholars will be performing a meditative day of medieval and Renaissance music across the Museum galleries on Friday 18 November to complement our COLOUR exhibition, and as part of the Late at the Museum event. Performances will coincide with the monastic hours of the day from Invitatory at 12 noon to Compline at 19.30. For a full list of times and performances, see Illuminating Sound: Music from the manuscripts on our website.
The Museum’s doors will remain open until 21.00 for a special after-hours opening - the first of a new series of events for adults by the University of Cambridge Museums. During the evening, drop-in and view the permanent collections and exhibitions, including COLOUR: The art and science of illuminated manuscripts. The Shop will be open for late-night Christmas shopping until 20.45 and the Café will be serving food and drinks until 20.30 (orders for hot food close at 20.00). A special screening of Monty Python and the Holy Grail will also be shown during the evening (now fully booked).
