Lisburn city centre is set to come alive for second Culture Night event

Lisburn City Centre will come alive on Friday, September 19 and for one night only venues across the City Centre will open their doors to introduce you to a world of live music, art, exhibitions, performance, workshops and family fun.

Over the past weeks and months Lisburn City Centre Management, ISLAND Arts Centre, Lisburn City Council and Lisburn Historic Quarter Arts Group have been working hard to put in place the final preparations for Lisburn’s second Culture Night.

So what is Culture Night? It is a night of FREE entertainment, discovery and adventure which takes place in towns and cities across Ireland. Culture Night is the perfect opportunity to get together with friends and family, grab a programme, explore the City Centre, experience something different and enjoy a great night out.  This year Culture Night has even more to offer with over 30 free events in 25 venues across Lisburn city centre. The excitement is building as many community groups and organisations are coming together for one night to offer a range of cultural activities, helping to breathe life into the city.

Alderman Allan Ewart, Chairman of Lisburn City Council’s Economic Development Committee said, “Not only does Culture Night provide the opportunity for performers and venues to showcase their works and connect with local people, but it also gives local people the chance to connect with their city. Lisburn City Council is proud to contribute to this event through the DSD Revitalisation Project and Community Festival Fund.”
