Triskel celebrates Culture Night with three exciting events and all are welcome to explore. In our foyer, the young people of Foróige Bishopstown and Curraheen Youth Project UBU present their projects from their summer camps as part of the pilot programme for Creative Young Neighbourhoods. In Triskel Christchurch, you can enjoy the Oscar-nominated Song of the Sea, with a soundtrack by Kíla, followed by a tongue-in-cheek romp through trailers from classic and cheesy movies of yesteryear – that one is over 18s only.
