Over the three days visitors will be entertained by a fantasticPageant of Fire Eaters and Drummers and have an opportunity to see the internationallyfamous play,‘The Tailor and Ansty’ performed by Ronan Wilmot and Nuala Hayes.Locals and visitors alike will experience what it was like to live in Bantry beforeelectrification as we leave all the lights off and bring out the lamps and candles. Otherentertainments will include a photographic exhibition, kids historical treasure hunt, céiliand much much more.The festival will open with the traditional Friday Market where hawkers and streettraders will ply passers by with their home produced goods, locally grown vegetablesand exotic imports.
