As part of its major community engagement project Plymouth After Dark, the Plymouth History Centre is offering a chance to win a pair of tickets to either Day One or Day Two of this year’s MTV Crashes Plymouth.

Plymouth After Dark is a four-year community project looking at everything that happens in the city when the lights go down. Part of the project involves collecting stories and memories of nights out on the town and you can win a pair of tickets by sharing your experience of your best (or worst) night out in Plymouth. 

Tony Davey, Learning Development Officer at Plymouth History Centre said: “We’re really keen to hear stories from anyone who has experienced a great or terrible night out in Plymouth; was it at a concert at the Van Dike Club? Eating at a fine dining restaurant? Dancing to Carl Cox at the Warehouse? Or meeting the love of your life at Ritzy? It may have been 50 years ago or last weekend, whenever it was, we want to hear about it.” 

Councillor Glenn Jordan, Cabinet Member for Culture, said: “The city has always had a great nightlife and Plymouth After Dark will record and celebrate this important part of our cultural heritage. We want to capture as many memories, images and objects as possible so share your stories with us – you could win tickets to one of the biggest nights in the city’s events calendar.”

MTV Crashes Plymouth takes place on Plymouth Hoe on Thursday 27 and Friday 28 July.To be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets email your story to afterdark@plymouth.gov.uk by midday on Friday 21 July, remembering to say which night you would prefer to win tickets for.
