Horniman's is still in third place unfortunately but it's gone up to 24%. Hopefully we can get some more people from the forum voting, would love to see this at the Horniman's.

Maybe would work better in general section? Would that be allowed?

Thanks for supporting this. Increasing the percentage of votes by 9 points in a single day is a great start and if others join in and vote we will easily overtake the two top choices.
Well used online forums can make a huge difference in online polls like this.

Don't forget to ask your family to vote as well. As long as you have seperate email addresses, different people can each cast a vote.

It's a shame this has been moved to The Lounge. Is it not considered close enough to ED to be in ED businesses? I'm sure a lot of people in ED use the Horniman, maybe it could go in the 'What's On' section if it's not felt to suit the business section.

Did you drag the icon in to the "drop here" box? yYou have to do that before you can click "Vote Now".

Although when they call an icon "the musical note", they're wrong. It's a treble clef.

I had to drag the Woman - felt a little grubby afterwards but it's all in the name of art

Is there a way to see how the vote is going?

messageRe: Vote for the Horniman - Museums at Night
Posted by michael_FH 27 February, 2013 16:05

Reports on other forum are of Horniman reaching 27%, still third place, so we need to get many more votes before the close of voting on Tuesday. We have moved up 12 percentage points, so we are closing the gap with the joint leaders who have fallen to 36%.

Please also consider sharing this on Facebook by going to http://www.facebook.com/hornimanmuseumandgardens to encourage your friends and neighbours to support our local museum.

Voting closes on Tuesday, so we really need lots more people to vote if Horniman this weekend.

This thread needs a big bump. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE VOTE FOR THE HORNIMAN.

The last project this company did (the Rain Room) finished last week at the Barbican. It was free but there was a permanent 2 hour queue to get in, except for the final weekend when it was longer than that. I've no idea if it was good or not because I was put off by the queues and didn't see it.

[www.guardian.co.uk]

This is our chance to have an exhibit on our doorstep, at the Horniman. It's worth 2 minutes of your time to register and vote, so please.

Use the OP's link at the top of the thread to vote.

It's a bit confusing at the end when you have to drag and drop the icon thingy, but please persevere.

Great news - The Horniman won!

"rAndom Internationals recent immersive installation Rain Room at Barbicans 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."
