Culture Night


Culture Night is an annual all-island public event that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts. This year, it will take place on Friday 23rd September 2022. On Culture Night, arts and cultural organisations and venues of all shapes and sizes extend their opening hours and organise special and unique events and workshops which are available to the public free of charge

Last year over 1000 people attended events across Leitrim. This year Leitrim County Council Arts Office welcomes applications from previous Culture Night event organisers and encourages new participants who might like to become involved for the first time.

Culture Night is particularly suited to venues seeking to encourage new audiences and organisations such as choirs, theatre companies or book clubs who could host an evening of novel or exciting activities designed to engage new members.

So if you are interested in organising or hosting a Culture Night event we would like to hear from you.

The event must take place between 4pm and 11pm on Friday 23rd September and be free of charge to the public.

Leitrim County Council Arts Office can provide financial support towards your events up to a maximum of €1,000 and will include details of your event as part of local and national Culture Night publicity material.

The value of grants provided will depend on the number and quality of applications received. It may not be possible to fund all applicants and available funding will be allocated to those applications which best meet the objectives of the programme.

Applications must be made online only through the link below before Friday 8th July 2022.
