Performers sought for Culture Night

Maria Pepper

The organisers of County Wexford Culture Night are looking for artists, performers, community groups and venues wishing to take part in this year's event on Friday, September 20.

Culture night is an annual initiative that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts by staging a wide range of indoor and outdoor events for members of the public to enjoy free of charge.

This year, the organisers are paying special attention to the scheduling of events to try and avoid an overlap which would reduces audiences and are asking performers to be flexible in the time of their proposed events.

Events can include but are not limited to music performances, comedy acts, outdoor performances, installations, literary events, visual art, theatre, dance, filmm talks and workshops. New ideas, works in progress and collaborations are especially welcome.

Groups or venues looking for more information should go to

The closing date for applications is Friday, June 28. Late applications will not be accepted. Queries can be emailed to
