A great Tipperary Culture ‘Night Out’

Published 11 months ago 24th September 2021 by Editor

The sun shone all over Tipperary for the recent Culture Night events which were attended by thousands of people on and off line. 

From exhibitions and concerts in Nenagh and Thurles, escaping historical figures in Clonmel and concerts in Lily’s Lane, Clonmel’s latest outdoor venue, audiences adopted the Culture Night 2021 motto, Come Together Again with enthusiasm.

Amongst the online events were radio plays in Carrick on Suir, an online dance film celebrating the diversity of Borrisokane’s young people and a film screening of ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ from Roscrea. The outdoors retained their appeal at Derrynaflan with a walk to the island interspersed with music performance, poetry readings and a print workshop where audiences created their own prints to take home with them courtesy of the Found Links project curated and produced by Print Van Go’s Aoife Barrett.

Tipperary’s many arts organisations; Nenagh Arts Centre, The Source Arts Centre, Thurles; South Tipperary Arts Centre, Clonmel, Clonmel’s Junction Arts Festival and Finding a Voice Festival, Cashel Arts Festival, Cahir Comhaltas, Libraries in Cashel and Tipperary Town, the Tipperary Excel Heritage Centre, Tipperary Town, the Museum of Hidden History and many more created and welcomed audiences to events. Tipperary Arts Officer, Melanie Scott said “we are delighted with the turn out, thanks to everyone and especially the county’s many arts organisations for delivering a wonderful evening throughout Tipperary. We have a great arts community in the county and we were especially delighted to welcome new arts venues in Cahir Arts, Cahir and Art D Studio, Borrisokane. We’re already looking to 2022!”
