This Friday September 22, Donegal County Council Arts Service is delighted to present another fantastic programme for Culture Night, the annual all-island public event celebrating culture, creativity and the arts.
While most events are taking place in Letterkenny, Bundoran Community Centre will be opening its doors to all of Bundoran’s international residents with food and music from various countries on the night. The event happens between 7 and 9pm on Culture Night, Friday 22nd September.
2017 will be Letterkenny’s 9th occasion to take part in Culture Night and the programme for 2017 offers 40 diverse events in 25 venues that celebrate our unique local cultural identity. In common with other participating towns and cities, Letterkenny will open up to an evening of accessible, family friendly events – completely free of charge.
Once again you can expect a night-time experience of all types of culture – visual art, music, theatre, sculpture, spoken word, dance, moving image and more. Your trail through Culture Night Letterkenny will lead you all over the town, with indoor and outdoor events in diverse places from the Masonic Hall to Wholegreen Cafe. You can explore all sorts of happenings presented by the Donegal County Museum, Regional Cultural Centre, An Grianán Theatre, The Central Library and Donegal County Council Heritage Office – to name but a few.
Voices will soar as special choir events take place around the Cathedral Quarter area. We kick off with local African Church, the Choir of the Church of Pentecost, performing at 6.15 in the Pastoral Centre; next the Gaudium choir present high quality choral liturgies at 7pm in Conwal Parish Church before the Conwal Singers and guests host an evening of reflective choral music in St. Eunans Cathedral from 8.30pm.
The Letterkenny Town Park will once again welcome families for a brilliant Culture Night adventure. Inishowen Carnival Group along with performers from the Aisling Academy & Dynamic Waves will present The Ancient Ones at 7.30 & 9pm. The Spacescape team will create a beautiful illuminated installation inspired by the peaks of Donegal. And we have a host of incredible artists in our children’s workshop tent from 6pm – 9..30pm! Don’t forget to wrap up warm and bring a torch.
