Embark on an after-hours adventure at Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) on Saturday 16 May 2015. From 5pm, YSP opens its doors to visitors in celebration of the annual Museums at Night festival.
Spend the evening, part of Culture24’s festival of after-hours culture and heritage celebrated across the UK, exploring the dusk delights of YSP. Visitors can take an exciting storytelling tour, watch the sunset over the 18th century Bretton Estate, discover heritage features and follies by candlelight, and much more.
Take a family-friendly torch-lit journey through YSP’s major exhibition Henry Moore: Back to a Land. Set off on a storytelling tour through the ‘closed’ gallery, uncovering unknown and hidden stories as you go, in Moore’s Mysteries: The Element of the Unknown (18.00 & 19.30, £4).
Join the experienced YSP Heritage team on a Twilight Lake Walk (19.30, £6) to explore the rich history of the landscape. Enjoy a tour around the Park’s historic lakes to discover its interesting follies and features by candlelight.
Whilst exploring the Park, pay a late night visit to Roger Hiorns’ spectacular installation Seizure, 2008/2013 and marvel at the sparkling blue environment of copper sulphate crystals (drop-in, 17.00–20.30, free). Then take a trip down to James Turrell’s Deer Shelter Skyspace, 2006, for Simply Sitting at Sunset (20.30, £6) where you’ll experience a heightened vision of the changing sky at sun set.
To celebrate the late night opening, why not join us for dinner? With 10% off all food and drink in YSP Restaurant, from 5pm–8.30pm, visitors can enjoy their evening meal whilst taking in the breath-taking views over the Country Park.
