The importance of culture in Solothurn is not only significant, but also above average compared to the rest of Switzerland. Every week, the calendar of events is packed with a wide range of cultural activities, from readings, concerts and exhibitions to dance and theatre performances to name only a few.
The aim of the Cultural Night is to bundle the variety and the high quality of the cultural offer, so that it can be experienced in one evening. The wide selection of local cultural activities which were presented at the Cultural Night 2009 and 2011 drew a great response from the public. More than 10,000 people attended the last event, and even weeks afterwards the organisers received many positive reactions from the public, the sponsors and the authorities.
The Cultural Night is organised by the association “pool!” which is a union of Solothurn’s cultural organisations and institutions.
