Irish Premiere at the Terryglass Arts Festival – celebrating its 15th Birthday
Wow, can you believe we are celebrating our 15th Birthday this year and what an exciting programme we have to offer over the five day festival. We are delighted to welcome ‘Travelling Circus” by Sharmanka Kinetic Theatre to the shores of Lough Derg for their first visit to Ireland.
The festival is organised by a small voluntary committee who work enthusiastically all year round to make each festival bigger and better and it has now become an unique experience on the arts calendar. We would like to say a special thanks to all our sponsors without whom this event would not take place and encourage everybody to support them.
The festival is a celebration of the arts, creativity, talent, inspiration and enjoyment and this year we have something for all ages and interests, starting on our Opening Night with some young local amazing talent who would only have been babies when the Festival first started. The Gala concert in the church this year is an evening with Vladimir who does “Clasical Music with a Twist” a must for your concert calendar for 2013.
There is something for everybody at our 15th Festival ranging from workshops to visual arts to live music in the village. Please note that we have on-line booking for all events so don’t forget to book early to avoid disappointment.
We look forward to seeing you in Terryglass – Arts for Life (Na hEalaiona Feadh Saol).
