Art, Architecture and Revisionist History
Culture Night 2017 is Friday 22nd September and most of the arts and heritage venues within and around the Derry Walls are throwing their doors open with free taster events. For the latest information go to Derry Strabane’s Culture Night webpage. Amidst all the excitement and cultural enrichment, Mark Lusby of the Friends of the Derry Walls will be conducting a guided walking tour of the Walled City, focusing on its architecture. Along the way he will be stopping at some of the arts and heritage venues, so you’ll be able to sample some of what is on offer, later. He’s arranged some some access-all-areas ‘passes’ so you can see some artworks not normally on show to the public. Expect some ‘revisionist history’ too as we all need to look at our given histories through fresh eyes. The tour starts at 6.30pm leaving from the foyer of the Playhouse on Artillery St. No need to book. Dress appropriately for the weather or for where you’re going on to later! The tour will finish at 7.30pm leaving you plenty of time to go to the other Culture Night events in the Walled City.
