Evening Events at the 2016 Festival

Celtic Evening

Thursday 4th August, 7.30-10pm

Drawn from the history and folklore of our Celtic neighbours, this show will bring a stunning musical journey through Ireland and Scotland.

The artists - including Eve Williams, The Brothers Gillespie and other artists, will be passing on the traditions of their forefathers through music, song, and dance with pride and passion as well as a hint of new and interesting collaborations in a Celtic fusion.

Join us for a Celtic celebration where audience participation with foot tapping and hand clapping is inevitable.
