Wrap Up in Culture Night 18.09.19

THIS Friday, September 20th, hundreds of thousands of people across Ireland are once again invited to experience an explosion of creativity as the country comes alive for Culture Night, Ireland’s annual nocturnal cultural extravaganza.
This will be Letterkenny’s 11th occasion to take part in Culture Night, and with over 50 diverse events in 27 venues Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council Cllr. Nicholas Crossan believes that “this is a terrific opportunity for families to sample aspects of Irish culture and heritage and it is great to see people of all ages come together and enjoying a totally unique evening of accessible, family friendly events and all completely free of charge”.
Launching the packed Programme of Events for Culture Night in Letterkenny on Friday 20 September is Cllr. Nicholas Crossan, Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council, Cllr. John O'Donnell, Mayor of Letterkenny MD and management and staff from Donegal County Council's Cultural Services Division.
The largest outdoor event Cybertribe will take place in the Letterkenny Town Park and is an absolute favourite every year. This night time extravaganza of sculpture, performance and art installation is inspired by comic book visions of the future and real-life emerging cyber technologies and is presented by Inishowen Carnival.
Other much anticipated happenings include the guided tours at Letterkenny Courthouse along with a very special reading from the 2019 Culture Night ambassador poet Annemarie Ní Churreáin.
Visual arts and films are strongly featured this year with a selection of exhibitions available at the Donegal County Museum including the Letterkenny Folk Festival and ‘All Aboard the Donegal Railways!’ where visitors can also watch footage from the heyday of the trains and share memories of the railways of Donegal.
Down the road, the team at the Regional Cultural Centre once again offer something special for all ages and interests with visual art, film and family workshops.
The Central Library will once again present a fantastic programme of history and heritage for Culture Night with exhibitions, tours and the Jessica Harkin Family Magic Show kicking off proceedings with a magical sleight of hand show that promises to get Culture Night off to a magical start.
