Cushendun Big Arts Weekend 2019- full programme revealed

The full line-up for this year’s Big Arts Weekend has been announced.

This is the seventh year of the festival and to celebrate we have fantastic headliners including Dr Éamon Phoenix, and some familiar favourites including Share-a-Poem and the Family Funday Sunday.

This year’s John Hewitt talk ’50 years of the Corncrake’ is by Cushendun resident  Dr James Morrow. Artists should book early for the painting masterclass led by painter and experienced teacher Michael Sayers.

Back by popular demand are old favourites, The Art Exhibition, the pop-up Tea shop with scrumptious buns and cakes, and Naturally North Coast and Glens Market.

Celebrating the May Bank Holiday, the amazing Armagh Rhymers will be performing in the grounds of Glenmona House accompanied by children from St Ciaran’s and other local primary schools.

There are many early-bird discounts so visit our Big Arts Weekend page now to book your place!
