Chapter 40 Celebrations Fri 15 — Sun 17 April • Gwe 15 — Sul 17 Ebrill On Friday 15 April 1971, at precisely 3.45pm, the first ever Chapter board meeting was held and our constitution was signed. During the coming 12 months we’re programming a series of special events to celebrate 40 years at the forefront of the European cultural scene; 40 years of creating and presenting groundbreaking, internationally acclaimed work in cinema, theatre and the visual arts; 40 years as a cultural hub, a meeting place of ideas, a safe and open space for creative minds. We’re kicking off the celebrations with an action packed weekend of art, entertainment and good times. And we’d be delighted if you’d join us for some or all of the weekend’s activities, including a children’s street party, live music and cabaret performances, a 70s disco and special birthday versions of your favourite Chapter events. Have a browse of the next few pages for full details of what we’re up to. Our birthday extravaganza is still in the planning stages so keep an eye on www.chapter.org for more details, or join us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/chapterarts) or Twitter (@chaptertweets).
