Culture Night is an annual all-island public event that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts. This year, it will take place on Friday 19th September 2014. 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.
The following list gives a taste of the wide range of people and institutions that make it happen across Ireland: the public, artists, performing groups, galleries, museums, sports clubs, libraries, arts centres, craft workers, studios and workshops, theatres, public spaces, broadcasters, schools, community groups, local authorities, Government Departments, state agencies and public bodies, transport companies, universities, shops and many more!
