The Fitzwilliam Museum will be opening its doors after-hours again on Thursday 25 November from 17.15 to 20.00.
There will be the opportunity to see the Museum’s new exhibition Gold of the Great Steppe, featuring hundreds of outstanding 2,700 year old gold artefacts recently discovered in the extraordinary ancient burial mounds of East Kazakhstan. And the theme of the exhibition will run through the Museum’s programme for the night with workshops (booking essential), special pop-up talks, tours and live music.
There will also be the chance to see the new display of contemporary ceramics by Cambridge School of Art graduate Magdalene Odundo. And budding rowers should look out for the silver winning trophies of the Men’s and Women’s boat race put on public display for the first time in the history of the Oxford-Cambridge University Boat Race, in the Museum’s Courtyard. Before you go, don’t forget to catch up on your Christmas shopping with cards, decorations, and unique art inspired gifts and jewellery in the Courtyard Shop.
