If you, like everyone else, are only now wishing you'd booked in for Culture Night, there are still plenty of things to do for the stragglers out there. If you're in town and looking to fill some time, we've picked some events to consider dropping by. If these aren't your thing, there is a huge selection to choose from, from free exhibitions to talks and screenings, just double check on the website that you don't need to pre-book. See you out there!
The team behind Morning Gloryville are popping by Culture Night at a much more reasonable hour than their usual 6am start, and will be in Meeting House Square from 7pm-10pm. It will definitely be worth stopping by, anyone who's been to one of their events will know it is completely random and they definitely know how to work a crowd. We've been told to expect dancers, yoga and er, massage?
If you're in a group and looking to please everyone, Smithfield Square will be split up into eight different zones and there will be loads to choose from. There will be live music, workshops for the family and even a bit of fencing. It's only a short walk down the Luas line but will still give you a bit of breathing time if you're wanting to get away from the crowds. From 5pm-10pm.
Culture Night Market @ Dublin Food Co-op
If you're a total foodie or just after a bit of everything, this special Culture Night Market from Fusion Sundays and Dublin Food Co.op is for you. There will be a selection of food stalls with street food from around the world, workshops for the whole family and even a film screening. There will also be lots of live music to enjoy, from African to Irish with some Bollywood dance in between – they definitely got the memo.
The fantastic team behind this aerial show have been touring around Ireland and will be in Barnardo Square from 7pm showcasing their skills.
Open Air Concert at Dublin Castle
Probably the highlight of Culture Night, RTÉ Orchestra will be playing at Dublin Castle from 7pm-10pm and there are so many special guests we can't name them all. Check out the website to see who-is-on-roughly-when, we're especially looking forward to appearances from Daithí and The Strypes.
