Here at the Cultúrlann we welcome the time of Bealtaine, the days are getting longer and compared to last year, so is our programme of events! We’re delighted to bring a plethora of new events and programmes for the coming months as we transition from Spring to Summer.
With the majority of the restrictions lifted, this is a big year for us as we get back into the swing of welcoming the community, artists and other talented people back in the doors of the Cultúrlann cultural arts centre.
This year’s Bealtaine programme got off to a brilliant start with a book launch ‘Bone and Marrow | Cnámh agus Smior’ by Samuel K. Fisher and Brian Ó Conchubhair. For the youth there will be Na Bopóga, Fall’s Road Youth Club and Aisling Óg and for the rest there will be a mixture of new Irish languages classes, Áine Ní Bhreisleáin will be coming with her show ‘Bladhaire’, an album launch with Kevin Meehan and much much more! However this is only a taster of what we have to offer. Be sure to have a look at the full programme of events!
Róisín McDonough, Chief Executive of The Arts Council of Northern Ireland states:
The Cultúrlann has been here for us throughout the pandemic, serving the arts and the wider community, and here we are still, giving everyone just what the doctor ordered with our uplifting Bealtaine programme: a very timely shot of creative inspiration! As principal funder through our National Lottery funds, the Arts Council is proud to support the Cultúrlann as it continues to inspire everyone through the arts.
Gráinne Ní Ghilín, Director of The Cultúrlann MacAdam Ó Fiaich says:
Praise the young and they will flourish! The Cultúrlann building has been standing proud and tall for 125 years, and an important part of our work is to ensure it will remain an invaluable resource for the community for many years to come. There’s plenty more to see inside, and we look forward to welcoming you to An Chultúrlann soon!
