The Observatory Science Centre at Herstmonceux, is an educational charity based within the former home of the Royal Greenwich Observatory. They have entered the 'Connect10' competition which gives venues the chance to win a top artist, plus a bursary, for the Culture24 initiative 'Museums at Night' events held during May.

The science centre's unique environment and their connection with science history must have played a part in their selection as one of only four venues across the UK with the chance to win the artist and musician Fred Deakin (of 'Lemon Jelly' fame). If the science centre wins Fred for the night, he will host an evening of top class entertainment as part of Museums at Night. Fred’s idea is to put on a Day-Glo game show party within the science centre. He will divide the audience into teams and then test their skills with a series of devious challenges based on the science exhibits … all set to music! And then he'll get the party started!

The science centre needs help to win Fred. It all depends on the number of votes each venue receives - the highest number of votes wins. Voting closes at 5pm on Tuesday 28th January; to place your vote, go to Register your vote and keep everything crossed to welcome Fred Deakin to Herstmonceux!

The Museums At Night initiative is supported using public funding from Arts Council England.
