Kildare Arts Service : Culture Night : Culture Night 2020

Culture Night 2020 Kildare - Friday 18th September

Culture Night 2020 featured a selected and unique programme of events taking place across county Kildare.

Many local artists, venues and community groups responded to Kildare Arts Service’s call, despite the challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Encouraged by their enthusiasm, Kildare County Council Arts Service hoped that the 2020 programme highlighted the importance and value of our creative sector, in all its artforms. From music gigs to visual art exhibitions, craft workshops and theatre plays, the programmed included over 40 free online and offline events, giving everyone the chance to take part safely as all events strictly followed HSE and government guidelines.

Responding to our invite Local Ambassador Keith Walsh said: “It genuinely is a great honour. Having performed my one man show 'Pure Mental' from the stage in the Riverbank during lockdown and I was blown away by the energy and enthusiasm of everyone involved,and feel very grateful to have such a facility on our doorstep. It's so important, especially this year that we all do what we can to support the arts in whatever way possible.”  

Keith Walsh, radio and TV broadcaster, presents on RTÉ 2FM and RTÉ Gold, and previously was the lead anchor on RTÉ 2FM’s Early Morning Breakfast Show ‘Breakfast Republic’.

On September 18th 2020 from 4pm till late #ConnectThroughCulture with Kildare’s exciting programme of free online and offline events.
