Council unveils programme of events to Celebrate Culture Night 2018

11th September 2018

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council recently launched a varied programme of activities to celebrate Culture Night which returns to venues across the district on Friday 21 September 2018.

Culture Night is a UK and Ireland wide celebration of culture, heritage, creativity and the arts and Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is delighted to be taking part once again in this excellent initiative. From early afternoon to late evening, locals and visitors can enjoy a day of free entertainment, discovery and adventure.

Speaking at the launch of Culture Night, the Chairman of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Howard Thornton said;

Culture Night affords arts and cultural organisations across the district the opportunity to open their doors to the public to celebrate and showcase the diversity of the creative community. With special or extended night time events, all offered free of charge, this year’s programme has something to offer everyone with everything from song and dance to arts, crafts and language being catered for.
This year, the Council is trialling a different approach to Culture Night with the emphasis on activities in rural areas and events delivered for and by local communities.”
