The festival, which took place between March 24th and April 3rd, included cabaret-style performances and powerful artistic light installations, helping to light up this beautiful Georgian-style city.
It is just one of the numerous festivals that take place across the island of Ireland each year.
Some of those events included walking tours, live storytelling and music sessions around the city’s streets and venues, musical performances on the city’s Market Square, and a fire and light show at the Armagh Observatory and Planetarium.
Outside of the city at the Navan Centre, a popular tourist attraction and once the great royal site of pre-Christian Gaelic Ireland, visitors enjoyed Northern natives Ryan McMullan and the contemporary trad band Beoga perform.
The festival also included a cabaret circus event in some of County Armagh’s beautiful apple orchards.
Aerial performances featuring jaw-dropping circus skills together with delicious street food and award-winning ciders and juices were just some of the activities that were on hand.
Armagh’s galleries, museums, restaurants, and bars all worked together to create additional fun, part of the festival's “big cultural mash-up.”
