Live Lates 2017

After a break in the cold winter months of December and January, we’ve been enjoying the beginning of spring and the return of our Live Lates. Events Assistant Laura Feltham gives us a run-down of what’s been happening and what’s in store.

Museums Sheffield’s programme of Live Lates grabbed my attention from the moment I moved to the city so it’s an absolute pleasure that I now get to work on them and introduce our latest series here!

To start our season of Live Lates, we marked LGBT History month and the 50 year anniversary of the decriminalisation of homosexuality with a psychedelic evening of celebration. On Friday 24 Feb, we danced to the sounds of the 60s with DJ Heather Paterson, painted live art with Charly Calpin and remembered our LGBT+ heroes with a rainbow memory wall and LBGT+ history timeline. If you missed that Friday, never fear! There are plenty more evenings to come!

In 1964 Bob Moog created the Moog synthesiser and changed how we make music forever. March’s Live Late hosted a fantastic evening of performance from Fay and Ayse from Savages and Blood Sport, as they experiment with a plethora of vintage Moog equipment. We were so excited to be hosting this legendary lab on a night of experimental unique sound.
