An underground glow-in-the-dark game show could take place at the National Coal Mining Museum - if it wins a national culture competition.

The museum would stage the unusual event if it wins Culture 24’s Museums at Night competition.

And the idea for the event was dreamt up by Brit-nominated artist Fred Deakin, from electronic band Lemon Jelly.

He plans to get visitors to take part in a fluorescent party and join in a night-time treasure hunt set to music and a Crystal Maze-style battle.

But members of the public need to vote for the idea to take place at the Overton museum as part of Culture 24’s competition.

Other events will also take place across the country during the Museums at Night weekend in May.

The annual initiative celebrates arts, culture and heritage by using hundreds of museums, galleries, libraries, archives and heritage sites for special evening events.

To ‘Vote for Fred’ to go to the mining museum visit www.culture24.org.uk from tomorrow (Tuesday).
