SWAP that Friday night pint for workshops, talks, music, cocktails and a classic British horror movie.

Based on the success of similar events held last year, Scarborough Art Gallery is once again hosting a series of Friday Lates where gallery-goers can tour both the collections and exhibitions outside of usual opening hours, with a special event thrown in.

The most recent welcomed Manchester-based artist Lucy Elsie Harvey who made bespoke jewellery using found objects based around the current Fears, Foes & Faeries exhibition, which runs until September 30, giving a taster of what’s to come in an upcoming workshop.

Ian Read, Scarborough Museums Trust’s learning manager, said: “Lucy makes fantastic jewellery inspired by charms and superstitions, so it was an obvious tie-in with our current exhibition which looks at British folklore.

“The evening went really well, and we’ve already got quite a few bookings for her two-day jewellery-making workshop on May 12 and 27.

“Her talk was part of our Friday Lates series - the next is a mini festival on May 18 including music, costume, a theatre performance, another jewellery workshop and a Parisian cocktail bar.”
