Two young musicians breaking into a trad session on a Dublin Bus was just one of the spectacles for Culture Night this evening.

Over 3,000 free events kicked off this evening nationwide for the night, and Dublin Bus were in on the action.

Buses on the Culture Night routes were being provided for free this evening, the hop-on-hop-off services departing every 20 minutes to ferry people around.

And musicians gathered on the back seats of each bus to provide some good old-fashioned entertainment.

Now in its 13th year Culture Night is an annual celebration of arts, heritage and culture and this year it boasted its biggest programme to date with free events for all ages and all tastes on offer nationwide.

Anyone who used the Culture Night app can upload their photos and be in with the chance of a prize.
