SOOOOO... for our tenth birthday, Culture Night Belfast has only gone and got itself nominated for a NATIONAL LOTTERY AWARD!
We've been short-listed for "Best Arts Project" alongside six other organisations - all G.B. based - including Hull City of Culture.
To put it another way, we are the ONLY Irish/ Northern Irish organisation short-listed!
As well as being hugely thrilled about being nominated, a crazy notion has started to enter our heads that we might actually be able to win this!
This is where you come in. The Awards are voted for by the public, so we're asking all our friends, partners, colleagues, supporters and all fellow Belfastians and Culture Nighters to not only vote for Culture Night Belfast, but help us spread the word!
