Default Which capital of culture events would you like to see become annual?

I put this in the Langer's Forum to try to get a bit more of a response. I'll put the link here so that it doesn't just disappear down the list there.

The Spiegeltent. I went to three gigs, all of them very good. It's a great small venue for local and smaller bands.

The open air concert in the Barracks should be a regular affair, to me seeing Andrea Bocelli on a beautiful summers night was the big highlight.

There should be something like the awakening at the start of every year the fireworks were spectacular.

The marquee should be ever present especially more international acts.

The more festivals the better especially with more hotels opening up in the city Cork should be aimed as the cultural and vibrant city that people forget about when they think Ireland. Dublin is beginning to loose its appeal its time for the real capital to take over.

What i'd like to see every month is the market that was held on Oliver Plunkett street .... great atmosphere, great food, really cool thing to have on. Most other European Citys have something similar and they are great.

Cant actually see why that could not happen.
