Fermanagh's only Arts Festival ... Running even a small festival takes a mammoth amount of time and effort. So why do I and my team of helpers bother? The answer, which is well known, is that festivals are good for you!! They are your mental “five-a-day” - or should that be Flive-a-day! It is also a fact that societies with a rich cultural life are better to live in. Many have realised this which is why festivals like Edinburgh, Galway, Sligo and Belfast continue to grow year on year. So here's your opportunity to enjoy, locally, a range of live, artistic experiences that aim to bring people together socially for their collective enjoyment.' Held Early October.
