Alive at Night: Nuit Blanche @ McGill


Roddick Memorial Gate 845 Sherbrooke St. West, Montreal, QC, H3A 2T5, CA

Join us on Saturday, March 2 for "Alive at Night: Art, Music & History at McGill", a Nuit Blanche event that Research and Innovation is co-hosting with McGill's Visual Arts Collection and McGill's Schulich School of Music.

Enjoy a free flashlight tour of the art and architecture in Redpath Hall, a renowned 19th century building, and one of the oldest at McGill. Using archival film and photographs, Research and Innovation will be turning the spotlight on McGill's annual Beatty Lecture, launched in Redpath Hall in 1954 and now Canada's longest running lecture series. The tour will be followed by a live, multi-instrumental musical performance.

There will be a total of four tours throughout the night: two in English and two in French. Each tour will accommodate 30 persons and last approximately 60 minutes. The tours are free, but registration is required through Eventbrite here.


The starting point for each tour will be at the Roddick Gates, on Sherbrooke Street West (corner McGill College Avenue). The schedule for the tours is as follows:

9:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. Tour 1 (FRENCH)

10:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. Tour 2 (ENGLISH)
