Culture Night Friday 18th September 2015 – Save the Date

Culture Night Friday 18th September 2015 – How to get involved

Following the upward trend since the first Culture Night Kildare in 2010, Culture Night 2014 was a great success. In total there were over 100 groups, organisations and venues taking part to produce 59 fantastic events across the County.  Kildare County Council extend our gratitude to all those who took the time and effort to organise their events. 

Events encompassed all interests from music to history, film to nature, visual art to informative lectures, bus tours, walks and workshops. 

Culture Night 2015 will be held on Friday 18th September. Arts and cultural organisations are encouraged to open their doors until late with free events, tours, talks and performances for family and friends to enjoy. 

To maximise participation, we are offering the opportunity for certain events to be held on Saturday 19th or Sunday 20th September.  If you feel your event is better suited to the weekend we would like to speak with you to discuss the options available.

Kildare County Council will supply and design the posters, programmes, balloons and advertising for newspapers and local radio to help promote the events. 

It is very important that persons involved in hosting and organising events advertise their event locally by putting up posters, leaving programmes in their local shops, placing a notice in the community notes section of their local paper and using their databases to inform as many people as possible about Culture Night. 

The use of social media is also strongly encouraged. All of the Culture Night Kildare events will be posted to the ‘Arts in Kildare’ Facebook page, please join us and share the events to help spread the word. If you have a twitter account the national hashtag for Culture Night is #culturenight.

This joint advertising effort will ensure a large attendance on the night.

If you would like to discuss any ideas or confirm your place in this year’s programme please contact me. I would be delighted to discuss any queries, concerns or ideas you may have.

I can already mention that 2015 has been chosen as the Year to celebrate Irish Design. This could give you some ideas.
