In 2002 the first ‘Nuit Blanche’ took place in Paris, the brainchild of Jean Blaise who wanted towns and cities, for one night a year, to open their galleries and museums and other cultural venues for the whole night, and for the public spaces to be turned into giant performance areas where artists and musicians could perform in a wonderful carnival atmosphere. The ‘Nuit Blanche’ was a great success and since then has been an annual event, not only in Paris, but around the world.

This year Nerja is joining the party and the date set is May 18th which is also International Museum Day. The programme includes special events at the museum which will be free to visit. It is also planned to have entertainment on the Balcon de Europa and in other public areas, with a huge party until dawn in Plaza Espana.
