Celtic Band Festival

A note from the festival director:

Dear Friends

We’re now only 7 weeks away from our festival in Limerick and I wanted to reach out to all of our judges and VIP guests and give you all an update.

As it’s our inaugural year, we’ve been busy laying the groundwork for the festival. Making sure we have a well-constructed event management plan including all policies and procedures for the wellbeing and safety of our musicians, guests, and volunteers. This set’s us up nicely for future festivals and wins the trust of our both our commercial and local authority partners.

Earlier in the month, we launched a new website which will be added to over the coming weeks with details of the competitions, rules, and news. You can check it out at www.celticbandfest.com. This new website will allow us to start promoting our festival for future years. We’ve opened registration for both our 2020 and 2021 festival and have already received quite a bit of interest. Thanks to everyone for spreading the news of the new festival!

Our Irish bands are excited at the prospect of the new festival and will attend events throughout the two days in good numbers. Our hope is that over the coming years,  this multi-disciplinary festival will encourage bands to participate in events and performances that they previously wouldn’t have considered.

Judges and VIP guests will be contacted over the coming days by Lorna from the festival team to help them make arrangements. If you have any questions at all, please contact me or Lorna over the coming days and weeks.
