An Illuminated After Dark Adventure

An Illuminated After Dark Adventure

After nightfall, transport yourself into the nighttime world of illuminated spectacle. Equipped with a magical lantern, gather your friends to embark on a journey through 10 immersive exhibits brought to life with dynamic lighting, spectacular video projections and a soundscape for adventure. Swing by the exclusive Lonely Hearts Club Bar to mingle with fellow explorers and savour drinks under the starlit sky. Whether you’re meeting new acquaintances or reconnecting with old friends, Night Watch is the ultimate hotspot for after dark adventures in The County.

Created in partnership with The Department of Illumination, Night Watch is now in its second season and features returning favourites from last year and new installations ready to be explored. Night Watch can be experienced every Friday and Saturday night. Tickets will be available from dusk until 11pm and the experience will close at midnight
