No plans for Culture Night yet? Here's what's happening in the WEST this Friday

It’s Culture Night on Friday – and here’s our guide to what’s happening around the country.

HUNDREDS AND THOUSANDS are expected to turn out for Culture Night this Friday, when venues across the country will throw open their doors for hundreds of free events, tours, talks and performances.

There’s another bumper programme organised this year – and we’re here to help you decide what to do.

This morning, we’re looking at events taking place in the west of Ireland, but we’ll be turning our eye to other parts of the country over the coming days.

You can find the full guide over on the Culture Night website.
