One of the great success stories of the changed times in Northern Ireland has been the growth in the arts.

New and innovative festivals and events spring up with astonishing regularity and tomorrow night sees one of those - Culture Night - taking place in Belfast, Londonderry and Strabane. The arts, like everything else, needs extra funding, but by showcasing free a wide range of events, from street magic to storytelling, it will encourage people to take an interest in their more traditional offerings in galleries and theatres. As they say in these parts, it should be a great night's craic, and that's what the arts should be all about.
