2023 Strings & Things

In this, the sixth year of the Strings & Things Festival, the committee has aimed to provide a variety of music, theatre, circus, art exhibitions and lots of other things we hope you will enjoy. The annual festival is always a fantastic opportunity to catch up with neighbours and old school friends for a bit of music and a bit of craic but please act responsibly to ensure the survival of our lovely festival.

Each year the festival costs close to €10,000 to run but the incredible support, through fundraising received from the local community and local businesses has allowed the committee to continue to provide a high quality and varied programme. The Grand Prize Draw will be held on the final night of the festival and we ask that you would support our ticket sellers during the festival. May the Gods be with us for a safe and successful festival. 

While we thank sincerely our main sponsors we would like to thank those who took part in all our fundraising efforts and all others who have helped and supported the committee. 

Please drink responsibly over the weekend.
