Heritage Festival is ready to rock and roll

THE STAGE is set for this weekend's Heritage Festival at the Irish National Heritage park in Ferrycarrig.

The town will welcome music lovers from all over for this celebration of literature and music in a unique historical setting. Artists such as Mick Flannery, Cathy Davey, Duke Special, Declan O'Rourke and Jerry Fish are currently putting the final touches to their set lists for what promises to be a series of intimate and highly entertaining live performances.

Construction on the main stage at the Early Christian Settlement has finished and now awaits house band, Gavin Glass and the Tourettes, to deliver a series of fantastic performances with each of the acts before they all come together at the end to form a supergroup.

If seeing some of Ireland's most sought after musicians in a series of intimate historic venues at the Heritage Park wasn't enough to grab your attention, then seeing them all take the stage at the same time to form one band and cover classics should be!

For those travelling to the concert, shuttle buses will run from Redmond Square in Wexford to the Heritage park on a permanent loop and a 'park 'n ride' facility will also be available, allowing punters to park their car at Wexford County Council Headquarters and get the shuttle bus out the park.

No parking will be available on site so this free service is the best way for designated drivers to make it to the show. The event also caters for families and a number of family tickets are still available.

Wexford Arts Centre's ' Little Artists Club' will be on site at the concert meaning that while mum and dad enjoy hearing the ' supergroup' on the main stage, the little ones will enjoy making Viking artefacts of their very own!

If you have not yet picked up tickets for the Heritage Festival, there are still a small number of tickets left and they are available from Ticketmaster, Wexford Arts Centre or Whites for Music.
