This years Kildare Culture Night has a jam-packed programme of FREE events for the whole family.
From tours to workshops, performances, talks and exhibitions there is something for every taste!
Culture Night is the opportunity to engage with the rich arts and culture resources of our country and County Kildare has extended the programme to include events on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th, so everyone can get a chance to get involved!
This year, some special projects will shine an extra light on creativity in the county.
These projects will be displayed in the main streets of some county’s towns the week before Culture Night, getting the whole community to celebrate arts and culture.
