As the Festival Weekend progresses, we would like to keep you all updated on what is happening. And that is a lot! We are delighted with the events so far, and hope to see many of you over the next day and a half.
There are still a few tickets left for our events over the weekend, but if you are not able to secure the ticket of you choice, you will still be able to have memorable experiences:

You will see them on benches all over town, and over the next days in Floraville and Skerries Mills. Why don’t you take pictures when you come across one and share them with us on our Facebook page!
