A Win for the Horniman

rAndom International’s recent immersive installation Rain Room, at Barbican’s Curve Gallery, had visitors queuing for hours. For Museums at Night they will be weaving their magic at the Horniman Museum and Gardens, whose 1,615 votes secured a live art event with an installation, music and storytelling inspired by the museum, garden spaces and natural history collections.

Commenting on this site Horniman Museum have said:
"A BIG THANK YOU to everyone that took the time to vote for the Horniman in the Museums at Night/Connect10 competition. We're very excited to have won and can't wait for rAndom International to come to the Horniman. We'll keep you updated about the Museums at Night event, which will be in May, as it progresses.

Once again, thank you to everyone for your support, we're very grateful! "
The Forest Hill Society led the way in promoting the vote to our members, our friends on Facebook, followers on Twitter, and across local forums: se23.com, Sydenham Town Forum, East Dulwich Forum, South East Central, and Brockley Central.

We are delighted by this success for Horniman Museum and look forward to rAndom International setting up something special at the museum.
