Participants at the festival range from international musicians, a stand-up comic, art groups, a barbershop harmony club, Irish dancers and singers. Ticketed concerts will be held on Friday, 6.30pm, in St Swithun’s Church, and a party cabaret will be held on Saturday, 7.30pm, at the George Hotel. The event will be rounded off with a guest appearance from ‘Father Austin Purcell’ from TV’s Father Ted and a host of special guests.
