Culture Night in Donegal

18th September 2015, Letterkenny

Culture Night is a unique celebration that offers the opportunity to sample forms of culture you may not normally make time for. It is also a reminder of what we have all around us, often on our doorsteps, every day and night of the year.

Almost any cultural venue you can think of in Donegal is open for free on Culture Night. It is a fantastic opportunity to introduce children, young people and culture-phobes to the world of culture, as every diverse form is showcased in the best possible light.

National Culture Night is an evening of free, family friendly events in cultural venues and community spaces in Letterkenny and An Gaeltacht. You will enjoy free exhibitions, concerts, talks, walks, readings, workshops and tours – all brought to you by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, in partnership with Donegal County Council and Ealaín na Gaeltachta.
