About this Event

Kilkenny County Council are holding an Open Day on Saturday, 14th March, 2020, at the newly refurbished Evans Home off John Street, Kilkenny. This is an opportunity to view another high-quality conservation project, recently completed by Kilkenny County Council, and the latest addition to Kilkenny’s medieval experience in Kilkenny’s Cultural Quarter. The Evans’ Home site, located in the heart of the City, is rich in archaeological heritage and has been largely hidden from view until now. In addition to the refurbishment of the historic building itself the development delivers a significant new area of public open spaces which will include a Children’s Garden, an Archaeological Garden, a Sculpture Garden and a new pedestrian connection from John Street through the site to John’s Quay. The eagerly awaited finished building will be the new home for The Butler Gallery, currently located at Kilkenny Castle.

There will be information sessions taking place throughout the day which will chart the progress of the project from design to completion.

Entry to this event is free-of-charge but booking is essential through eventbrite.ie. There are 3 blocks of viewing time slots available. This link will allow entry to viewing 2 at 12:30 pm.

Agenda:

12:30 - 1:30 pm - Discussion from panel around the journey of the development
