A few seats left at Gap Arts Festival

By Dan Walsh

The creative 10th annual Gap Arts Festival is taking place this weekend, and Festival Director, Garrett Keogh told WexfordLocal.com; “While we have had online activities, we have tried to keep live performance and the bringing of people together at the heart of what we do.”

The Gap Arts Festival highlights

Taking place at Ballythomas, close to the Wexford-Wicklow county border the Festival will feature outdoor events, films, a picnic with live music and entertainment, and a reading of a new play by well-known actor Garrett Keogh, with a cast of Wexford-living Fair City regulars, including Ruth Hegarty and Aisling O’Neill.

We are informed that this event is sold out for tomorrow night and there are only about nine seats left for Saturday night’s performance, so quick action is necessary to be part of the audience.

Two short films are commissioned by Gap Arts Festival. One, a DIY short film, made by people at home on mobile devices over the last few months, that will be edited into a document of the community’s experiences of the lockdown. And a bi-lingual short Ceol na gCrann, The Music of the Trees, an allegorical piece with music on renewal and hope in dark times.

Pre-booking can only be made through Eventbrite.ie. Audience capacity is very much reduced. All events observe government health and safety guidelines including social distancing and sanitisation. For more information http://www.GapArtsFestival.com
