On Culture Night Belfast, which takes place on Friday 21 September, Power NI will be lighting up the iconic St Anne’s Cathedral with a stunning, never-before-seen “projection mapping” which thousands will get to experience for free, and will reflect this year’s themes of love, community and togetherness.
The project mapping, which takes place right at the epicentre of the evening’s action, will also be one of the centrepieces of this year’s Culture Night, which will feature over 250 family friendly free events across the city centre and beyond. Since it started in 2009, Culture Night has fast become the largest single event in Belfast’s cultural calendar. Last year’s Culture Night Belfast attracted over 100,000 people to the city with the same number anticipated again for this year.
Culture Night Belfast manager Kerry Rooney said: “We’re thrilled to be working with Power NI on what we think is going to be one of the most memorable events at Culture Night 2018. It’s shaping up to be a spectacular 10th birthday and what better way to celebrate than by illuminating St Anne’s Cathedral in such spectacular and sympathetic fashion. I can guarantee people that they won’t be disappointed with this stunning highlight of a packed and wonderful programme.” Gemma-Louise Bond, Senior Sponsorship and Events Executive commented: ‘We are delighted to partner with Culture Night for what is sure to be an electric moment on one of Belfast’s most incredible buildings! Using light in combination with the arts for the spectacular Power NI Lighting Up Generations show is going to be a moment to remember for years to come and we are delighted to be part of the wonderful 10th Birthday celebrations”
