The 2019 Ballina Fringe Festival will be staged from October 4-20 next featuring top music, fine art, theatre, dance and film events.

Some great musical treats are in store and will no doubt attract capacity audiences to the north Mayo capital for this year’s Fringe Festival.

Included in these is a concert by Sligo’s eclectic folk collective “No Crows” and multi-award winning Camille O’Sullivan who is renowned for both her extraordinary voice and captivating stage theatrics.

Classical pianist Finghin Collins will also perform live as part of Ballina Fringe Festival 2019.

Art lovers won’t want to miss the showcase exhibition of recent works by Ennis-born Mick O’Dea who is the current president of the Royal Hibernian Academy and a part-time Mayo resident.

Also exhibiting during the festival is the Mayo-based 7:1 artists’ collective.

The festival will host a number of theatrical performances too including a staging of Pat Kinevane’s “Before”.

There will also be a wonderful opportunity to enjoy some contemporary dance by the Flora Fauna Project while fans of the big screen will have an opportunity to see a local screening of the acclaimed “Float Like a Butterfly”.

This year’s Ballina Fringe Festival will leave a lasting legacy in the form of the “Pure Ballina!” contemporary urban street art initiative that will see local groups collaborate on new art works for public spaces in the town.

Festival event tickets go on sale on Sunday, September 1 next.

Developed in partnership with Ballina Arts Centre and Mayo North, in association with lead sponsor the Ice House hotel, the festival is also funded by LEADER, Creative Ireland, NYCI and Mayo.ie.

Local sponsorship is currently being sought so if you are or know of a business or individual that would like to support this significant new event get in touch by emailing: [email protected]
