The programme for this year's Culture Night has been unveiled. Free events will take place across Dublin on the evening of Friday September 22nd.
Museums, galleries, cathedrals, studios, libraries, parks, government buildings, theatres and more will throw open their doors late into the night for visits, tours, workshops, readings and performances.
Co-ordinator Aimee van Wylick hopes the once-a-year event encourages people to make their own plans all year 'round.
"The majority of these buildings are open 364 days a year. It's a really fun night, a night of exploration, but we really hope it encourages people to visit these organisations the rest of the year", she said.
The Culture Minister, Heather Humphreys, has described it as "a night like no other on this island, helping to make our rich and varied culture more accessible to all."
The Minister wants to encourage "everyone to come out and get closer to culture and explore what is happening in your area".
In Dublin, highlights include the Irish Railway Record Society, the National Gallery, Cathal Brugha Barracks, Morning Gloryville and The Worst Tour of Dublin, a fun tour of the city with almost-facts.
