On behalf of Fermanagh & Omagh District Council, I would like to congratulate the Fermanagh Arts Festival Committee on such an excellent programme of events for the 2018 Festival. Fermanagh Arts Festival was established in 2007, I am delighted that it has continued to flourish and grow, and this year’s programme embraces a diverse genre of arts & culture in many guises featuring local and national acts.

Highlights from this year’s programme include an appearance by internationally renowned folk music troubadour Paul Brady, “Green & Blue” by Kabosh Theatre Company and a contemporary dance production by internationally acclaimed Fermanagh dancer Dylan Quinn. This year’s festival also celebrates visual art with an extensive programme across many venues in Enniskillen’s town centre as well as many more music, literature, comedy, film and workshop / pop up events suitable for all.

I would like to wish the Festival Committee every success with this year’s programme and I would encourage you, the public, to show your support for Fermanagh Arts Festival by coming along to the events. There really is something for everyone. Councillor Howard Thornton, Chairman, Fermanagh and Omagh District Council
