Culture Night Cavan was very successful. There's been great community spirit throughout all the planning, organising, promotion and the events themselves. We've had excellent feedback from event organisers and audience attendance has increased on last year. We're already looking forward to Culture Night 2019!!
If you would like to be involved in Culture Night 2019, you can contact The Arts Office and we'll be in touch in the New Year to confirm details. We hope Cavan will continue to have an excellent variety of events and continue to grow on this years success.
We'd like to thank Cavan Arts Festival, Breffni Photography Club, Bridge Street Centre, Lorraine Teevan, Adrian Donoghue, Jane McCormack & Joe Keenan and Suella Holland for their images.
