Culture Night Lisburn 2014 - music, street theatre, crafts & a smart-adventure through the park #CNL14

Culture Night is being celebrated in many cities and towns across Ireland this Friday.

Lisburn is offering free entertainment, discovery and adventure for the second year running. The full programme (PDF) is available in shops and restaurants around the city centre. Keep an eye on @love_lisburn for updates.

Local restaurants and pubs will be hosting a rotating platter of live musical acts for diners and drinkers: Del Toro, Square Bistro, The Tuesday Bell, Angelo’s, The Wallace, Hague’s Bar, The Favourite Bar, The Three Crowns, and The Cardan (which celebrates its tenth birthday in the old Robins Nest site with a party on Thursday from 8.30pm)

Lisburn Ladies Harmony Choir will be livening up Castle Gardens from 5.15pm-6pm. Later on at 7.30pm there’ll be an hour of entertainment with Fusion Theatre performing hit songs from popular musicals.

R-Space Gallery on Castle Street (the old rectory) is hosting family art workshops with Shirley Brown Camblin (Garryvoe House art & craft studio) from 5pm-7pm. Local blogger Heather McGarrigle from The Patchwork Quill will be there from 6.30pm-8.30pm with knitting, pom pom making, friendship bracelets and more. Singer and guitarist Guitarbuckle will be playing live, and there's the promise of hot drinks and sweet treats too.

Down the street Lisburn Cathedral coffee room will be open with an acoustic two-piece Sarah and Chris Calvert performing.

Students from SERC will be performing on the street around Lisburn along with firedancer Colleen Eardley.

The YMCA on Bow Street will be open to explain how they support and empower vulnerable young people, adults and families.

And there’s a QR-code based animated adventure Dog#7 from The Left hand Cinema through Wallace Park starting at the back gates (Belsize Road). The clues/codes will be in place from 4pm until 9pm. Make sure your phone has a QR code reader.
