Westival - the Westport Music & Arts Festival is back this year with a great line up of music, theatre, food and much more...
👉 Our DO NOT MISS list is as follows:
1️⃣ Floozy & Bloozy's Dirty Cabaret - Sat 8pm at Teach Scoile. Get ready to be seduced by an evening of original songs that sound like they should be on Broadway but are more fitting for your local sex shop. Throw in some questionable costume choices and you're in for a hilarious evening. Trust us!
2️⃣ Christine Tobin & Friends - Fri at Westport Town Hall. Christine's rich sound was described by The Guardian as ‘Tobin’s 24-carat voice’. Her expressive range acknowledges finely acquired jazz, folk and twentieth-century classical influences.
3️⃣ Dani Larkin & Coda - Fri at Holy Trinity Church. Dani Larkin is being heralded as ‘one of the finest songwriters of our time’. Larkin has been creating music for several years and is a well-known face on the live circuit in Northern Ireland. Local group Coda performing is a rare treat, if not unique – seven singers whose harmonies blend beautifully topped off with multi-instrumentation as part of the package.
4️⃣ The Renegade Rascals street cabaret envelop their audiences with their legendary fire shows using a wide array of fire flow-arts. Sat & Sun on Westport's Fairgreen.
5️⃣ The Harvest Feast - Friday at Teach Scoile celebrate October’s harvest of ancient seed, fruits, wild cockerel and hare. All accompanied by seasonal cocktails, desserts, pop up performances and much more. We're in!
