Cork City Culture Night 2017 is officially launched
From live music, theatre and film to art exhibitions, crafts and street performance, Cork is a city steeped in culture and talent. With such a wealth of inspiration and history on our doorstep, Cork City Council presents Cork Culture Night 2017; a city-wide event that will take place on Friday 22nd September.
Speaking at the official launch of the highly-anticipated event, Lord Mayor of Cork, Cllr. Tony Fitzgerald, said: “This year’s programme features a jam-packed and varied series of events. There will be approximately 200 free events taking place in over 100 venues across the city, some of which are mobile with thanks to our partner Bus Éireann. We hope to see the Cork culture vultures take to the streets in their droves to experience the best of Cork music, art, film, architecture, craft and history. It is one of my favourite days of the year as I see the city come alive and be celebrated.”
On this very special evening , all Cork Culture Night events, venues, workshops and performances are completely free of charge to members of the public, giving you no excuse not to immerse yourself in an evening of entertainment and culture, which is all just on your doorstep. A number of events and workshops due to capacity require a free booking to secure your place, so check out the full programme to plan your route for the night and ensure you have your place booked where required.
