Boyle Arts Festival 2021 to go ahead!

By Brendan McGee

Well, they promised that they would be back this year and they are keeping that promise! The Boyle Arts Festival committee is delighted to announce that BAF 2021 will take place from Thursday, August 5th, to Sunday, August 8th, with a selection of special events taking place until Saturday, August 14th.

While the main festival will be shorter this year, it will not be short on quality, and details of the very exciting programme will be announced in the coming weeks. The main Visual Art Exhibition at King House is going ahead and will run until August 31st, and details of the Local Art Exhibition will be published shortly.

With many restrictions still in place, this year’s festival will of course be a different experience, but the committee are following Covid-19 guidelines and working to ensure that all of their events will be as safe, enjoyable, and memorable as ever. Tickets for all events will be limited to the recommended, socially distanced capacity of each venue, and will only be available to purchase in advance. It is not planned to have a festival office this year, but details of how to purchase tickets will be announced shortly. There will be no tickets on sale at events.

So with less than seven weeks to go, the line-up for Boyle Arts Festival 2021 is almost complete, and the official programme will be launched in just a few weeks’ time. Featuring over twenty events, including an impressive mix of live music, visual arts, street drama, interviews, online films, talks, dance, commissioned music pieces, readings and much more, Boyle Arts Festival is the place to be this summer!
