Switch on to Culture Night at The Source Arts Centre Thurles

Now in its thirteenth year, Culture Night returns on Friday September 21st 2018.


Culture Night is an annual all-island public event that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts. This year, on Culture Night, arts and cultural organisations and venues of all shapes and sizes, including the National Cultural Institutions, extend their opening hours to allow for increased access to the public. Special and unique events and workshops are specifically programmed at participating locations and everything is available free of charge.

Culture Night has grown from a relatively small scale cultural event staged only in Dublin in 2006 to the significant national cultural event it now is, with some 400,000 people visiting museums, galleries, historic houses, artists’ studios and cultural centres across the island. The initiative has captured both the public imagination and the enthusiasm of artists and cultural organisations.


Switch on to Culture Night at The Source Arts Centre ThurlesThe Source Arts Centre opens its doors and gallery for the official launch of artist Glenn Fitzgerald’s exhibition ‘Gappy Being’. Glenn Fitzgerald is an artist from Cashel currently completing his MFA in the National College of Art and Design in Dublin. His work is about a world between worlds – quite dreamy and hazy – it can also have a dingy atmosphere like a mechanic’s garage. There are beings in it, all useless and some of them slot into the narrow gaps between actual reality and depiction.

Time: 7.30pm – 8.45pm


Free live music comes in the shape of Bleeding Heart Pigeons, made up of Limerick trio Micheál Keating, Cathal Histon and Brendan McInerney and are signed to Virgin Records. They released their debut album, ‘ Is’ in 2016 and are currently completing their second album. The band is one to watch out for and this is a chance to hear tracks from the new album as well as some from ‘Is’.


Time: 9pm – 11pm

Address: The Source Arts Centre, Thurles, Co. Tipperary
