‘Tis the Season…and Waterford’s Winterval Festival will be in celebratory mode for each weekend of the 10th annual festival. In addition to the recurring festival programme of events, there is a once-off festive fun event planned for each weekend from November 18th to December 23rd. The festival has a programme packed with 38 events, 25 of those are free of charge. Here’s everything you need to know to get you in the Christmas spirit.
Winterval’s Main Stage on O’Connell Street is the place to be for live music. The street will be fully pedestrianised for the four weeks (November 18 to December 23) of the Christmas festival, so we can enjoy all the music sessions laid on. Here’s what we can look forward to in the first two weeks.
There’s a touch of FOMO here today with the end of what has been a brilliant week of culture, history, art, music and a whole lot more. Celebrating 21 years, 2022’s Imagine Arts Festival is done and dusted and we’re sad to have no more events to attend. Here’s a recap of what happened on the final day of Imagine.
And so it's here--the last day of what has been a brilliant festival…and there is so much to enjoy before the final act on Sunday night. Start your day with spraypainting then take a tour of Waterford City to see how our ancestors lived. There’s single and book launches…and do not miss award-winning Dublin folk singer John Francis Flynn in St. Patrick’s Gateway. There’s so much to see and do…so get yourself into town!
We’re on the second last day of what has been an epic festival and it’s a jam packed schedule this Saturday. Start the day in Jordan’s for the annual booze, blaas and banter…always guaranteed to be a bit of craic. Then add in a bit of art, poetry, music and more…and that’s your Saturday sorted!
Yay! It’s Friday and there is loads in store for the weekend thanks to Waterford’s Imagine Arts Festival. Find out more about the city, its history and culture, art scene, literature talent and rocking music. There’s fun for all ages…so don’t miss out.
Day 1 of the Imagine Arts Festival started and finished on a high note. From historical building tours to heritage talks, the day ended with an awesome performance from Waterford man Moncrieff in Christ Church Cathedral.
