Culture Night 2022

DO YOU HAVE AN IDEA FOR CULTURE NIGHT?

Culture Night is an annual all-island public event that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts. On Culture Night, arts and cultural organisations and venues of all shapes and sizes extend their opening hours and organise special and unique events and workshops which are available to the public free of charge. This year, it will take place on Friday 23rd September 2022. Culture Night is particularly suited to venues seeking to encourage new audiences and organisations such as choirs, theatre companies or book clubs who could host an evening of novel or exciting activities designed to engage new members. So if you are interested in organising or hosting a Culture Night event we would like to hear from you.

Closing Date for applications: Friday 8th July 2022.
