Join us for Schullture on
Friday 18th September, 2015
Culture Night is a national public event that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts. This year, it will take place on Friday 18th September 2015. On Culture Night, arts and cultural organisations and venues of all shapes and sizes, including the National Cultural Institutions, extend their opening hours to allow for increased access to the public. Special and unique events and workshops are specifically programmed at participating locations and everything is available free of charge. Culture Night happens because many people share a vision and enthusiasm for enjoying, celebrating and promoting creativity and culture.
