The Pan Celtic Festival which will be hosted in Derry for the first time during Easter Week, has something to offer for the whole family, the city’s Mayor has said.
The festival celebrates the cultural links between the six celtic nations of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany and the Isle of Man and will be held in the city from April 22-27.
During the festival children will have the opportunity to take part in straw crafting, a treasure hunt, and a story session in the world-famous Spiegeltent in Guildhall Square.
There will also be a performance from the Armagh Rhymers on Friday, April 25.
Looking forward to the festival, Mayor Martin Reilly said; “I am delighted that the Pan Celtic Festival has been incorporated as a key element within the Music Legacy Fund and to welcome this festival which will offer audiences not only some of the most exceptional performers from the Celtic nations of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany and the Isle of Man to the city, but a complete range of exciting family-orientated events throughout the week promoting Celtic culture.”
