This year the organisers of The Percy French Festival are particularly delighted that President Michael D. Higgins, is opening events at the Family Day on Tuesday 10th July.
Anxious that as many people as possible witness and celebrate this historic and wonderful occasion, the organisers are marking this significant event for the County with a Family day.
This will include The Army Band who will give a Recital on the front lawn including of course Percy French numbers and the presidential salute when the President arrives.
Also on that day there will be face painting, puppet show, storytelling and vendors selling their local products all in the big top marquee in the wonderful grounds of Castlecoote House.
Family Day cost is €5 per person or €20 for a family of up to six. (Because of the proximity to the River Suck, children must be accompanied by an adult at all times).
The Festival Family Day takes place on Tuesday 10th July, beginning at 9 am and gates close at 10.30 am sharp. Full details can be found at www.percyfrench.ie or contact 090-66 63794.
