The August full moon will be celebrated this year with over 110 free events and late-night openings of archaeological sites and museums across Greece on Sunday 10 August, 2014.

The sites and museums that are scheduled to participate in the August full moon celebrations will be open to the public with free admission from 21:00 until 12 midnight.

It should be noted that the Acropolis site will not be participating in the events and for that reason will close as scheduled at 20:00.


Events in and around Athens

Among the museums and sites to remain open and host events until midnight in Athens include the Acropolis Museum, the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion, the Numismatic Museum and the Archaeological Site of Eleusis.

The Acropolis Museum will celebrate the August Full Moon with opera classics, film music and famous Greek melodies, performed by the historic Hellenic Air Force Band at 21:00 in the museum’s entrance courtyard. The museum will remain open from 8a.m to 12 midnight (free entry for all visitors from 9am onwards), giving visitors the opportunity to stroll through the galleries and enjoy the view of the Acropolis under the moonlight.

The area outside the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion will host the musical show “That Music” with performances of Greek actors Marina Kalogirou and Dimitris Papanikolaou and lyrical singer Vassiliki Karayanni. They will be accompanied by the orchestra music room, consisting of eight musicians and original compositions of Theodoros Lembesis inspired by texts of world-famous writers including Sophocles, Euripides, Shakespeare and Chekhov.

The Numismatic Museum will host a concert entitled “The moons of the Mediterranean” (Marios Strofalis, Fenia Christou, Alfredo Stouni) at 9pm.

The Archaeological Site of Eleusis in Elefsina will host a concert with Evanthia Rempoutsika.
