Balbriggan’s 9th Arts Festival will run from October 25 to November 1, with a wide range of music, theatre and literary events – some of which free of charge – taking place throughout the town.

 In addition to exhibitions from local and professional artists and traditional music ,this year’s programme will also reflect Balbriggan’s diverse population.

From a multi-cultural Sunday at the Bracken Court Hotel, to an indoor circus for all the family, to music gigs such as the explosive Boxtie Band and Eurovision song contest winner Charlie McGettigan, spectators will really be spoilt for choice.

Not to be missed are also the festival lecture, a writers’ workshop and the short story competition final.

The Bracken Court Hotel will be the location of the ticket office.

In addition, phone and credit card purchases will be available by calling  086 3062968  and tickets will be sold at most of the festival’s events.
