Culture Night 2012

Watch video from Derry~Londonderry and Belfast and let us know how you celebrated the largest free arts event of the year

Culture Company chief executive Shona McCarthy was flanked by the official City of Culture 2013 mascot, Oakey Dokes, and volunteers brandishing balloons, as she began the 100-day countdown to UK City of Culture 2013.

Behind her in the Craft Village – and at other arts venues across the maiden city – adults as well as children had come out in force to avail of free art workshops and performances on Friday, September 21 as part of Culture Night Derry~Londonderry 2012.

McCarthy would have been encouraged by the atmosphere of inclusiveness and togetherness in venues such as the Bedlam Market, Guildhall Square, the Playhouse Theatre and the Nerve Centre – where the crowds were happy to participate and make Culture Night 2012 a night to remember for all involved.
