    For the 8th year running, Wicklow artists are working

    hard across the county to put on an excellent Culture

    Night – filled with events that are free for you, your

    family and friends. September 22nd marks a country-

    wide celebration of our culture and our communities,

    and we hope that you make the most of what is on

    offer in Wicklow County. We would like to thank all the

    artists and organisers for their enthusiasm, hard work,

    and their wonderful expression of cultural spirit.

    As you enjoy the night, don’t forget to share your

    experiences and photos via social media, using

    Sacred Sounds is a group of very talented and gifted musicians who came together in 2016 to perform for Culture Night with musical director Bridget Kenny. This year’s concert is a celebration of the beauty of creation and the spiritual joy of nature all around us. We are delving into the vast repertoire of songs from South Korea and China to add variety to add an oriental view of spirituality. All the songs being performed are beautiful and with the amazingly talented singers we hope to bring a spirit of joy to all.
