Artweek in the Central City

The city centre’s big night of all things art is back for you to explore and enjoy. Wander from gallery to gallery taking in exhibitions, spend some time drawing, eating and listening to music in Khartoum Place or take someone else’s lead and join a guided walking or cycle tour.  

It’s going to be a biggie, so make sure your diary is free and you’ve got your best art buddies in tow.
