Poll: Culture Night... or the pub?

Venues and museums all over the country will be throwing their doors open for free later… But will you be heading along?

THOUSANDS WILL BE taking to the streets of our cities and towns for Culture Night this evening, as arts and cultural organisations throw open their doors free of charge.

Hundreds of free events, tours, talks and performances are taking place

But will you be at one of them? Or will you stick to the tried-and-tested Irish tradition of post-work pints, and a late-night takeaway?
