Security Review 'sharing day'

Accredited museums must obtain expert and objective security advice for collections at least every five years and plan to implement any recommendations.  We are interested to find out if there are museums in west Kent who are due a review of their security arrangements and would benefit from a 'sharing day' with a consultant security advisor to help meet the Accreditation requirement. Please contact to register your interest.

PR deadlines to take part in Museums at Night in October 

Less than a month ago, the Museums at Night May festival took place. Museums at Night are already looking ahead to the autumn festival on October 30 and 31.

The first Museums at Night October events have already been registered in their database, and together with PR coordinator Pandora they’ve worked out a communications schedule for when they'll be issuing press releases to different outlets.

Want your event to be included in the PR campaign? Then you need to register it in the database.

When should you register your event?

The sooner you provide the details, the more press releases and media outreach your event will be part of.

If you register your event listing by Friday 17 July, it will be part of every major piece of outreach Museums at Night do. If you register your event by Friday 17 August, it will be featured three times. If you register by Friday 11 September, it’ll be in the final two PR pushes, and the absolute final deadline to register and benefit from any of the Museums at Night publicity campaign is Wednesday 7 October.
