Mahatma Gandhi once said that “A nation’s culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of it’s people” and this is very true of Westmeath, as for this year’s Culture Night on Friday September 20th, over 45 free events will take place across the county.
In celebration of the thriving culture and entertainment events and venues throughout the county, Westmeath Arts Office will hold an official launch on Thursday 5th September at 6.30pm in the Atrium of the County Buildings in Mullingar where the colourful array of events that will be taking place on Culture Night will be announced. The launch will also to celebrate the many fantastic cultural ambassadors and organisers who make Culture Night such a huge success every year, in particular those who - through the arts office association with Westmeath Volunteer Centre have been working closely with.
Speaking of the Culture Night programme – Westmeath’s new Arts Officer Miriam Mulrennan says “Westmeath has always ‘delivered’ in terms of diversity, creativity and participation on Culture Night. This year our focus has been on the nationally agreed themes of ‘Explore – Engage – Experience’ and we have looked particularly at encouraging new audiences into our cultural spaces to ensure that those that are on our doorstep, are visited and appreciated. The call for ideas and events was much later this year than normal – but of course the creative practitioners and venue operators responded with typical energy and that is why we have achieved a robust programme of events. I think there is something for everyone to enjoy all over the county, and I would encourage people to pick up a programme, select a couple of cultural venues and / or events that they would not normally go to, and make their way there on Friday the 20th. This encompasses the spirit of what ‘Culture Night’ is all about.”
Events on September 20th vary widely from the planned art trail in Moate to a Viking Boat tour in Athlone, from an art exhibition in the Garden Gallery in Delvin, to complimentary guided tours in Kilbeggan Distillery, and not forgetting yarn bombing in Mullingar and free guided tours of the majestic Belvedere House and Gardens. These are just a handful of this year’s Culture Night events which should not to be missed.
Officially launching Culture Night on September 5th will be the much loved actress Mary McEvoy and alongside the launch activities, Mullingar Camera Club will be unveiling their annual exhibition which will be on display in the Atrium throughout the month of September. Mullingar Harp School will provide musical harmony to what promises to be a celebratory night for the arts in Westmeath. All are very welcome on the night and proceedings will begin at 6.30pm sharp in the Atrium in the County Buildings in Mullingar.
