Galway Culture Night aims to showcase Galway’s rich cultural fabric along with cultural institutions throughout the city and County and ultimately make the Arts accessible to absolutely everyone - enthusiasts and novices alike.
This year Culture Night is taking place on Friday 21st September from early afternoon to late into the night. This is the first year that a Culture Night Programme has been organised for County Galway. To our delight, 17 towns and villages across County Galway are holding 49 Culture Night events in 39 venues. Amongst these venues are some of County Galway’s richest cultural assets such as The Battle of Aughrim Interpretive Centre, Claregalway Castle, Athenry Castle, The Irish Workhouse Centre in Portumna, Portumna Castle and Coole Park.
Dozens of events are also taking place in the City including the Druid Theatre Company, the Town Hall Theatre, Galway City Library, St Patrick’s Band Hall and NUIG.
Everything is free of charge to the public so we really hope you help make Culture Night 2012 a night to be remembered!
