From A to Z, best offline events of Culture Night 2020

Tough times, creative mind. When was the last time you visited a museum? Or, actually, the last time you really wanted to go to an exhibition? Lockdown made us all more aware about how important culture is and Culture Night 2020 brings you the perfect day-plan on September 18th. 

Culture Night is an annual public event which focuses on community. It encompasses many lovely values as encouraging more people to visit cultural venues. Also, it promotes diversity and inclusion through the celebration of all creative communities. What’s more, this festival was made in 2006 and since then, the initiative has captured the public imagination and its success has been propelled by the enthusiasm of artists and cultural organisations.

Going to public places still scares us a little, but Culture Night organizers have taken it into account. For this reason, most events have limited access that requires you to book online. If possible, we recommend you to do it because some of the events are already sold out!

Online and offline events are available. From A to Z, this is a personal shortlist of best things to do on Friday 18th :
