The very best cultural experience Clare has to offer will be showcased on Friday, September 16.
Culture Night Clare 2016 will see 45 free cultural events for all ages being held throughout Clare over a five-hour period from 5pm to 10pm.
This year’s programme, which is organised by the Clare Arts Office and funded by Clare County Council and the Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs, is filled with free events across the county from Ennis to Ennistymon, Kilshanny to Kilkee and Kilkishen to Corofin.
Arts and cultural spaces throughout Clare will throw open their doors offering members of the public a chance to enjoy unique performances and catch a glimpse inside some of the most beautiful buildings and cultural institutions in their area.
“Over the past ten years this initiative has captured both the public’s imagination and the enthusiasm of artists and cultural organisations in Clare. This year is no different with 45 events planned around the county, including exhibitions, theatre, film, concerts, readings and storytelling,” explained Siobhan Mulcahy, Clare Arts Officer.
“Culture Night happens because many people share a vision and enthusiasm for enjoying, celebrating and promoting creativity and culture,” added Ms Mulcahy.
