Culture Night [ON SITE!!!] 2020

Friday, 18.09.2020, 16.00 – 21.00

Join us for Culture Night 2020! We will be hosting some lovely events to celebrate Cork Culture.

We’ve planned for a safe Culture Night, which means we’ll be limiting numbers into the site and into the museum. Our team will be on hand to welcome you and take contact tracing details. We may have a queue, but we have lovely music to listen to while you wait! Please follow government social distancing guidelines when in the queue and on site, and wear a face covering. 

Pop in for a sneak peak of our latest exhibition ‘Small Lives: at Home in Cork in 1920’. Using our rich archives we look at the everyday lives of the Presentation Sisters and students of South and North Presentation Convents, and from there explore life at home in Cork in 1920 and the impact of the burning of Cork on a city already in the grip of a housing crisis.

In 1920 Cork became ‘the Cockpit of Revolution’ which saw the deaths of two lord mayors and the city burnt. This unique exhibition gives a new perspective on the Decade of Centenaries and is not to be missed!

We will have live music on our Front Plaza by Cork City Musical Society, so if you have to wait a little to get in, you’ll have great entertainment.

In collaboration with our friends at Green Schools, we have created a great sustainability trail for kids! Come and pick up a copy and some pencils and find out why it’s great to be sustainable!

At 20.00 Caitriona O’Mahony and James Taylor will perform the first of Hienrich Bieber’s Rosenkranz Mystery Sonatas in the chapel, this performance is not seated and will simply be for those in the chapel at the time.


We also have a range of virtual events which will be online soon! Keep an eye on our social media for more!
