WANT A SNEAK preview of what Culture Night in Cork has to offer?

Then you’ve come to the right place, because this year‘s Culture Night bus preview tour is on its way to the rebel county.

Culture Night itself is taking place on Friday 22 September, with thousands of events planned for across the island of Ireland.

  • CIT Blackrock Observatory, to see the exhibitions and planetarium show

We’ll also pop into a local brewery at the end of the tour – plus along the way there’ll be entertainment from Music Generation… and a few surprises.

We have 20 pairs of tickets to give away (that’s one ticket per winner and they can bring one guest).
