Cork Culture Night officially launched
Now in it’s 16th year Cork Culture Night will see over 70 venues and organisations taking part in both virtual and in-person events on Friday the 17th of September. With yesterday’s announcement of further re-opening of the arts and cultural sector in the next few weeks, the return of evenings of music, art, dance and theatre are now close. This year’s theme is ‘Come Together Again’, representing a moment many of us have looked forward to for a long time.
Speaking as Cork City Culture Night was officially launched, Lord Mayor Councillor Colm Kelleher commented:
“It is my privilege to be launching the Cork City Culture Night programme of events for 2021. Culture Night is always a favourite evening for people all across the city, myself included. Last year, venues across the city went above and beyond to ensure that the people of Cork would still be able to enjoy Culture Night, albeit in a different way to previous years. And in 2021 they have done this yet again, adjusting to changing guidelines to ensure this year’s programme has another fantastic variety of in-person, outdoor and online events for all to enjoy safely. From visual arts to music, film and literature, there truly is something for everyone – and I am encouraging the people of Cork to ‘come together again’ and enjoy these free events for Cork City Culture Night 2021.”
Events include a celebration of street art in Fitzgerald’s Park, circus, street performances, exhibitions and a walkabout pageant.
A selection of short films from Cork will also be shown at The Gate Cinema from September 19th.
Most of the 2021 programme can be accessed in person and certain events will be streamed online.
