Crawley’s Irish Festival; Sunday 21st Sept at The Hawth. FREE for all the family!
This year’s Crawley Irish Festival will showcase some great free Irish entertainment, music, sport and dance. In its nineteenth year, the festival is a great family day out to enjoy if you are looking for great live music, superb family entertainment, food and drink with a lively atmosphere.
The full music line-up is available (with further additions to come) at www.celtic-irish.co.uk/festival and there’s a great variety of folk, rock and pop.
On show will be some of the biggest Irish acts from Britain and Ireland, whilst the Trad stage will feature the best traditional and folk acts to be found throughout the isles. The programme also features a traditional Irish Ceili dance, which should add a great “craic” to the occasion!
Legendary Irish comic Jimmy Cricket headlines the Festival with his raucous comedy set.
Crawley is home to some wonderful Irish dancing schools, the students of which will fill the dance stage bringing some great entertainment. The dance stage also plays host to the Open Dance Competition, attracting competitors from all over the world for a true showcase of talent.
Another highlight will be when all eyes are fixed on the big screens for the GAA Football All-Ireland Championship final between Donegal and Kerry, beamed back live from Croke Park.
