Angela Blackwell, THG’s curator, said: “We will have a really exciting programme of activities, talks and workshops at the gallery.
“We will be open until 10pm on Friday, October 30, and Saturday, October 31, to celebrate the Museums At Night Festival.”
For Hallowe’en (October 31), THG will put on a children’s workshop during the day, and then open its doors from 5pm to 10pm for its spooky spectacular.
On the evening, visitors can indulge in wood-fired pizzas, dance to a DJ, taste various ‘potions’ at a pop-up cocktail bar and try their hands at art activities.
Trick-or-treaters can also treat themselves to a hot chocolate.
The events will run alongside Mr Jerram’s art installation, which is called Harrison’s Garden.
It incorporates 1,000 clocks and will run at the gallery from Tuesday, October 27 to Saturday, October 31.
People from all over the region have donated old timepieces to be featured in the installation.
Rosie Clarke, of Museums at Night, said: “It was wonderful to see how the people of Devon voted for THG to win the chance to work with Luke. Luke is one of the UK’s top contemporary artists, and the mysterious 1,000 clocks installation he has created should give visitors a truly magical experience.”
