Wicklow set for feast of culture next Friday

Wicklow is set for a feast of culture next Friday (September 21st) at the thirteenth annual Culture Night, said Fine Gael Minister of State for Food, Forestry and Horticulture, Andrew Doyle.

“Wicklow is blessed with a rich cultural and artistic tradition. I’m delighted to see a wealth of events taking place across the entire county next Friday.

“The number of quality events is going to leave Wicklow culture fans with some tough decisions to make.

“Culture Night helps to enhance a sense of community and belonging and allows us to take pride in what our community has to offer,” the Fine Gael Minister said.

“Some of the highlights include ‘A Taste of Autumn’, with Catherine Fulvio in Blessington Library, Karl Henry’s ‘Healthy Living’, in Greystones Library, Join The  Boathouse Comhaltas group for an evening of music, dance, song and poetry in St Patrick’s National School Wicklow  to name but a few of the events.

“I encourage people to check out the programme of events as there’s something there for everyone, from classical recitals to family friendly workshops.

“Over the years Culture Night has proved to be a very popular evening with many people. I would advise people to check out events in advance as some places may require advanced booking.

“I would like to acknowledge the hard work of Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Wicklow County Council and the various arts and cultural organisations throughout Wicklow for helping to make Culture Night a very memorable evening,” said Minister Doyle.
