See you next year

2021 Festival postponed

The Management Committee have reviewed the current guidelines for events and have had to accept that, once the health of all concerned and the practicalities of meeting these rules are considered; it would be impossible to hold the festival this year without losing the magic which has consistently made it so special.  The limited numbers permitted, the unsuitability of many venues we have used in the past, and cost implications have made it simply unviable.

The decision was delayed for as long as possible in the hope that restrictions would be further lifted, but as this is unlikely to happen anytime soon, the changes would come too late for arrangements to be made for a November event.

However, we are determined that the festival will reappear next year whatever the difficulties and have vowed to start working on it from January onwards, when we hope the situation will be clearer and happier.  

The dates are set for 11th to 13th November 2022 when we look forward to seeing all our old friends and lots of new ones too, each with their own story to tell next year – so make a note of this in your diary.  We will be keeping our website and Facebook page updated as we go.

Hope to see you in Sneem next year.  Stay safe and healthy.
