June Fest in Newbridge is back with a bang, and we are delighted to be the main sponsor for this amazing annual summer arts and music festival. The official launch took place last night in Newbridge Silverware, with the Junefest team giving a glimpse of what is to come over the 23 days of the festival. The Junefest website was also launched, so check out www.junefest.ie where you will find the complete programme of events which will take place throughout this spectacular 3 week-long festival.
There will be over 60 diverse events and the main headliners this year will include Wallis Bird, Mundy and Sean Keane among others. The opening ceremony will take place on June 1st in the Town Hall where Christy Moore will kick-start the festivities.
The Credit Union Family Fun Day will take place on 5th June bank holiday Monday on the Main Street and will be another crowd pleaser featuring a variety of free and fun activities for all the family to enjoy. There will be arts and crafts, face painting, band recitals, food stalls, music on the main stage and street entertainment. And hopefully the sun will shine too!
We’ll be running a Grab a Grand competition on Family Fun Day, where one lucky person will have the opportunity to go into our cash grabber to grab €1,000! We’ll be giving away Golden Tickets for your opportunity to be that person, so keep a keen eye on our Facebook and Twitter pages for details on how to enter!
There’s something for everyone, so make sure you check out www.junefest.ie and don’t miss out!
