Mallow Set for Bumper Arts Festival
The 2019 Mallow Arts Festival runs from tomorrow, Wednesday 24th July, to Sunday 28th July and this year boasts over 40 Events for all ages and tastes to enjoy.
It crams in 5 entertaining days of live music performances, theatre, cinema, visual art, photography, crafts, poetry readings, workshops, exhibits and so much more around Mallow Town...
Saturday in particular is packed with Family orientated events which include puppet shows, digital scavenger hunts, clay & print workshops, as well as an excerpt from The Lion King presenting singing, dancing and acting.
Along with the plethora of music events, shows and performances listed in the Festival Brochure, there’s also plenty of music and fun around the streets on Saturday with a busking competition, face-painting and a circus performance in the yard of St. Mary’s Church.
Festival Chairperson Tadhg Curtis says “the annual Mallow Arts Festival is an example of what can be achieved when a committee works together, coupled with tremendous support from over 80 local businesses and organisations which include Mallow Development Partnership, Cork County Council and Mallow Chamber of Commerce. The vast majority of events are free and it is only possible through this wonderful community support”.
