The map is your guide to the event. It’s up to you what you decide to visit and explore on the night but, if you are a hardcore culture vulture, we recommend meeting at Frenchgate at 5pm picking up a printed map and following the route in numerical order, exploring each venue as you go. This project has been supported by DMBC, XP School, Frenchgate, Cast the Point and Arts Council England, in collaboration with local businesses and artists. It’s a free night out but please make sure to visit our brilliant local venues such at Queens, Marketplace Alehouse, Salutation, Mason’s Arms, Rum Rooms, Magdalen’s, The Regent Hotel, Brewery Tap, The Little Plough, Draughtsman, Tut n Shive, The Leopard, Hallcross, Relish and Zest.
