Culture Night 2021

Join us on Culture Night and ‘Come Together Again’ for an exciting programme of events taking place in Fingal. This year’s programme combines free online and live cultural activities at participating venues and locations. Audiences of all ages can enjoy a variety of music, poetry, performance, art, tours and talks specially programmed for Culture Night in Fingal.

Fingal Arts Office is delighted to present two special events; a tour by curator Marysia Wieckiewicz Carroll of ‘New Considerations of Familiar Settings’, a contemporary art exhibition for the inaugural 'GUEST’ programme at Newbridge House and the screening of ‘A Burning Tide’, at Loughshinny Harbour.  Ardgillan Castle’s newly established artists’ studios will be open to visitors, who will have the opportunity to meet the artists and designers now based at the bespoke studios in the castle.

Fingal Libraries will host an online poetry and music event which can be accessed through the Fingal Library YouTube Channel and Our Balbriggan will welcome visitors to view their photographic exhibition highlighting Balbriggan’s wonderful coastline. Swords Castle will present an online screening performance of a new music composition commemorating the birth of St. Colmcille. The Irish Institute of Music and Song, a superb music facility in Balbriggan, will host a music trail through their campus and DIAS Dunsink Observatory will present a virtual night among the stars including online ‘Light-speed’ talks. Visitors can also explore the beautiful interiors of Malahide Castle, one of Fingal’s finest heritage properties.
