Love Art After Dark 2017

'Love Art After Dark' is an annual event hosted after-hours in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, organised and hosted by the Museum in collaboration with the Fitzwilliam Museum Society, University of Cambridge. The event is free for students, and the night's programming includes a 10-minute talk series from curators and academics, behind the scenes tours of the collection, object-handling, life drawing and craft activities, as well as a rotating series of live music - jazz, babershop, and classical - and free champage and canapes.

Organising such an event requires flaweless logistical and communication skills; a team of over 60 student volunteers were recruited, trained, and timetabled to steward the event, and over £10,000 is fundraised to source entertainment and food and drink.

In 2017 attendence at the event was over 3000 students - a quarter of the Undergraduate population, and the highest on record.
