DANCING ANYONE? Museum puts a swing into your step

Royal BC Museum hosting its next adult-only Night Shift event, a swing dance/mixer

The Royal BC Museum is aiming to add a swing into your step with its upcoming Night Shift: Swing Fling event on Saturday, Feb. 16.

This Valentine’s Day-themed annual event comes hot on the heels of the massively popular Night Shift Halloween event, which last year sold out in a matter of minutes and left many sad souls wishing for a ticket.

For February’s Night Shift, the museum will again be transformed into one of the hottest party spots in town, as its exhibitions and halls are opened up to lovers and loners alike.

Among the history and artifacts of our province’s past, attendees will be invited to take swing dance lessons and then show off their new skills on the dance floor, aided by a live band playing tunes from times gone by.

There will be a variety of other events and fun-filled activities also ongoing throughout the museum, including a photo booth and love-themed lectures to learn more about the science of desire.

Food and drink will be available to get one and all into the dancing mood at this event, intended not just for lovers, but for those looking for a dance partner, too.

Night Shift: Swing Fling is a 19+ event. Find tickets online at royalbcmuseum.bc.ca, or if still available, at the museum ticket counter.
