How to register your Museums at Night 2011 events

If you've decided what your venue would like to do for Museums at Night 2011, the next thing you’ll need to do is add it to Culture24's Direct Data Entry system as soon as possible.

Even if you haven't confirmed your event, you can let us know that it’s in the planning stages (so we can include it in our advance publicity) by adding it to the site. You can hide it from public view by selecting the Planning option in the Event Status section of the events form – full instructions are below.

Getting a password

If you have lost or forgotten your username and/or password simply head to the dashboard and follow the instructions to get an automatic password reminder.

If you have never had a username and password, but your venue is on the Culture24 site, you need to contact us using this form.

If your venue isn't listed anywhere on the Culture24 website, fill in this form to join our network.

How to use DDE

To log in, you can either go directly to the log-in page or follow the Update Your Info link in the bottom right corner of every page on the Culture24 website.

Type in your username, which is your name (not your email address) and the password you have set yourself, and you’re in.

If for some reason you have difficulties, email and we'll be happy to help you.

When you have logged into the system, you will see your main organisation admin page.

There are five sections you can add information to:

Manage your venue/organisation details
Manage your events and exhibition listings
Manage your resources
Manage your collection details
Manage your users

Each of these sections links to a page where you can add and change information.

To add a Museums at Night event:

Click Manage your events and exhibition listings
Click Add a new event or exhibition

You will see a form with detailed instructions on the right hand side, but here are a few pointers for Museums at Night events in particular:

Title: Use your imagination! “Murder Mystery at the Museum” or “Twilight Candlelit Tour” sound more intriguing than simply calling your event “Museums at Night 2011 at Anytown Museum”.

Event status: If you haven't confirmed your event yet, you can set this to Planning – it won't be published, and you can go in later to update the details. If your plans are definite, please leave the event status as Confirmed.

Programmes: Open the Programmes tag, and make sure to tick the box marked Museums at Night 2011.

You can use as many words as necessary to describe your event. This text will also form the basis of the press information we send out, so make sure your description is as punchy and enticing as it can be.

If you'd like to discuss your Museums at Night plans, please contact Rosie Clarke on or 01273 623336.
