Culture Night celebrations to take over the streets of Tórshavn

Tórshavn’s Culture Night 2018 (Mentanarnáttin), an evening with numerous free of charge cultural events for all, will take place tonight.

The event, which has been held annually since 2001, has grown in popularity over the years and is referred to by some as ”Lítla Ólavsøka” (The mini national holidays) as the streets of Tórshavn are normally packed with people – Faroe Islanders as well as guests from abroad – during the event.

Tórshavn’s Culture Night has grown from a relatively small scale cultural event to the significant national cultural event it now is, with hundreds, or perhaps thousands of people visiting museums, galleries and exhibition spaces across the Faroese capital – as well as various festive concerts, which are also part of the program.
