Welcome to the site for the ‘After Dark’ festival, a series of (mostly) free public events taking place in Lancaster which examine and celebrate aspects of sleep and sleeplessness.
Over a week in November, we will be hosting a series of public talks, a film season, workshops and a walk through the night-time streets of Lancaster.
Sleep (and sleeplessness) are fundamental parts of the human experience, so we are pleased to be running these events as part of the only UK-wide festival of the humanities, ‘Being Human’.
To find out more about the Being Human festival, please visit their website. To find out more and to book onto events taking place in Lancaster, please take a look at our Events page.
