With Laurence Street closed to traffic and a street party to Celebrate the Gate (Laurence’s Gate) with St Peter’s Male Voice Choir and Drogheda Brass Band, Highlanes Gallery will be at the centre of the activity with much for you to have a great Culture Night.

Free Drop-in Mono Printing Workshop
With the recently opened 62nd Texaco Children’s Art Exhibition as inspiration, children and families are welcome to take part in this great introduction to the art of printmaking. Led by Yvonne Byrne, you will explore different mono printing techniques, focusing on drawing and mark making, using water based inks.
The Swinehounds play Relish Café & Foodhall
Duke Ellington said ‘There are two kinds of music. Good music, and the other kind.’ And then there’s the Swinehounds. The other other kind. A little bit of rag, a little bit of stride. A little bit of slink and a little bit of stomp. A wailing horn and a weeping piano, a walking bass and a sliding trombone, it’s New Orleans by way of Tin Pan Alley and stopping off at every dive bar along the way. Make a joyful noise. And if you see it cheaper, buy it.
