Brighton Museum celebrates the Mexican festival Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) at a special late night opening on Thursday 7 November.
Dead Late is part of Latin Voices Live! a festival celebrating Latin cultures from around the world in Brighton. Now in its second year Latin Voices Live! joins forces with literary community group Writing our Legacy to transform Brighton Museum into a little piece of Mexico.
Come and watch the dance of the Calacas puppets, take part in traditional craft workshops and learn how to make nichos (mini shrine tableaux) and decorate skull masks and sugar skulls. Join the sad storyteller as they sing ballads of love and loss or be creative in the writing workshop and explore political satire through the tradition of ‘calavera’.
At A Cemetery of Celebrations, our very own Day of the Dead cemetery, learn to dance Latin style and then try your new moves to the DJ set of contemporary and traditional Latin fusion from across the world. See you at the bar for a Mexican cocktail or two.
Thursday 7 November, 7-10pm, tickets cost £5, members £4 (in advance), £7 (on the door). Book in advance on 03000 290902, in person at any of our venues, or book online at Brighton Museums website.
