Culture Night 2020

Culture Night is an annual all-island public event that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts. This year, it will take place on Friday 18th September 2020.

Traditionally Culture Night provides people with the opportunity to visit cultural venues and organisations, try new things and experience workshops and events that they may not have tried before.

Over the last few months however none of us have been able to visit a gallery, see a performance or take part in a workshop. Nonetheless, our artists, designers, performers and filmmakers have been working through that time and our venues and cultural organisations have been carefully planning how they can invite us back to share that cultural wellspring.

Some events will be presented live online or pre-recorded and broadcast on the night while others will be live events in venues throughout the county. Following the published guidelines and in the interests of the health and wellbeing of our audiences and artists, booking for live audience events is strictly required and masks must be worn by all patrons except for children under 13 or those with reasonable grounds.

Have a look at what’s on offer, organisations and venues of all shapes and sizes have extended their opening hours and organised special and unique events – and remember – everything is free of charge, so enjoy!
