The museum will host its Red By Night event on Saturday – for an atmospheric evening of live entertainment, industrial demonstrations and living history.

Over the years, the Black Country has been famously described as ‘black by day and red by night’ – and the special after-hours event will celebrate its legacy.

Guests can wander through the cobbled streets, docks, houses and industrial areas and see for themselves what it was like to live on one of Britain’s most heavily industrialised landscapes – noisy, smoky and full of life.

There will also be experience displays and demonstrations from the Black Country Steampunk Society to discover the fascinating lifestyle, as well as fire-breathing entertainers.
