The organisers of the Pan Celtic Festival, which will be staged in Derry next month, have called for volunteers to help out during the event.

The Pan Celtic Festival will be held in the city from April 22-27 and will bring together the culture, music and dance from six celtic nations - Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany and the Isle of Man.

It is the first time the festival, now in its 43rd year, will be staged in the city and the first time it has been held in the North of Ireland.

The festival will include competitions, concerts, open-air sessions and exhibitions held at venues across the city.

One of the highlight of the festival will be a colourful parade through the city centre on Friday, April 25th and festival organisers have asked for volunteers to help with stewarding.

Volunteers will also be required to help out at competitions and concerts.

Hundreds of local people volunteered to help out during last year’s successful Fleadh Cheoil na h’Éireann.

Volunteer co-ordinator, Joyce Logue, said volunteering is a great ways to get involved in the international festival. “Volunteers can help out as many or as few hours as they wish. We particularly welcome our Fleadh volunteers back again. This is another opportunity to be involved in an exciting and entertaining festival,” she said.

A meeting for volunteers will be held in An Chultúrlann from 1pm -2pm on Saturday March 29. If you are interested please contact Joyce Logue at or phone 02871261484.
