Banks’s night at the museum

Banks’s kicked off its new partnership with the Black Country Living Museum with a late night celebration of the region’s industrial power.

The first event in Banks’s new sponsorship of the Black Country Living Museum was ‘Red by Night’ – an evening dedicated to industrial heritage on 14 May. The museum opened its doors late as part of the European Museums at Night Festival paying homage to philanthropist Elihu Burritt’s famous quote about the Black Country as being ‘black by day and red by night.’

The event embodied the atmosphere of the period, with costumed demonstrators involved in fire shows, poetry and theatre sessions. As well as enjoying a pint of Banks’s served at The Bottle and Glass Inn, revellers also got the chance to go on a trip into an underground mine and to meet Mr Newcomen, the man who invented the world’s first successful steam train.

Amie Cater, Marketing Assistant for Banks’s said: “This was our first event as official beer partner at the museum, it was a great evening celebrating our industry heritage with everyone enjoying a pint of Banks’s.”
