Culture Night at Hawk’s Well Theatre
Culture Night will take place this year on Friday, September 21st. A nationwide day of free cultural events for the family, Culture Night been steadily gathering momentum, and now is a firm fixture on our cultural calender. Events are taking place all over Sligo and the Hawk's Well Theatre will be hosting an array of events for all ages, from babies to infinity and beyond!
Our first event is Imagination Playground running at the theatre from 3 - 7pm. Geared towards children aged between 3 and 10 years, Bricí Spraoi’s Imagination Playground is a breakthrough play space concept to encourage child-directed free play to enable children and their adults to have hours of fun as they imagine, invent, build and play. Next up is Lullabies from Around the World - featuring a selection of singers from around the world who will delight and enchant babies as they deliver a soothing and delightful experience for babies and guardians alike. There will be two sessions for two different age groups; 3.30pm for babies aged 3-12 months and 4.30pm for babies aged 1-2 years. Booking is required as capacity is limited for this event. A special performance by Sligo Youth Voices will take place in the theatre from 5pm. Join Aoife Porter for a fun photography challenge ‘as gaeilge’ in Mise Sligeach at 6pm. Starting at Hawk’s Well Theatre, participants will receive a list of items to photograph using their mobile phones. On return to the theatre there will be a pop up exhibition and chat about the photos using the cúpla focail. No Smoke Without Fire starts at 8pm. A comic drama by Paddy Murray, full of sharp Dublin wit and starring acclaimed actress, Mary Murray (of Love/Hate fame), this is a hilarious tale of crime and its consequences. At 9.30pm, join Cathy Jordan and her Sligo Songbirds for a night of performance, singalongs and soup for the soul in our final Culture Night 2018 event at Hawk's Well Theatre, Sligo Songbirds Singalong.
All Culture Night events are free to attend.
