Culture Night 2018


Cork City Gaol is pleased to welcome back The Cork Light Orchestra for Culture Night 2018.

The Cork Light Orchestra formed by a group of amateur and semi professional musicians, will perform in the historic surroundings of Cork City Gaol in Sundays Well on Friday 21st September.

They play light instrumental music inspired by the salon, jazz and light orchestras of the 1920s and 30s. Their enthusiastic and joyful approach makes for an uplifting experience when watching them.

The event will start at 6pm sharp and will be a ticketed event.

Distribution of tickets will be on a first come, first served basis.

Tickets can be reserved by calling Cork City Gaol on 021 430 5022.

A maximum of 4 tickets is allowed per person.

Please note:

There will be no general public access to the Gaol on Culture Night.

Access is by ticket only;  There will not be tours of the Gaol on the night.
