From museum visits to dance displays, architecture to circus performance, Culture Night aims to show the richness and diversity of Ireland's cultural heritage.

Following last year's online event, the theme for this year's Culture Night is 'Come Together Again' as audiences return to live performances.

All events, indoor and outdoor are subject to current Government guidelines and those attending are advised to check capacity and other details online.

Culture Night is produced by the Arts Council in partnership with local authorities and cultural organisations across the island.

Events take place in the evening, and are free of charge. There will also be a number of later events taking place this year as part of the ongoing work of the Night Time Economy Taskforce.

Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media Catherine Martin thanked all of the organisations who, she said, met the challenges posed by public health restrictions by developing an innovate and accessible programme.

This year's programme aims to celebrate diversity and inclusion and showcase both new and established artists from all backgrounds and traditions.

Director of the Arts Council Maureen Kennelly described Culture Night as a "joyful night" which she said is a reminder of cultural and creative experiences that are available all year round.
