Hello and Welcome to Skibbereen Arts Festival 2016

Art is everywhere in West Cork. In the scenery, in the people and in the atmosphere. No matter where you go you are likely to bump into a practitioner or lover of the arts. The eighth Skibbereen Arts Festival pays homage to this vital fabric of our community with a programme that we hope you agree is simply astonishing!

There will be music, film, theatre and poetry. Literature, exhibitions, symposiums and installations. Walks, talks and workshops. Family fun days and a spectacular 1960s street party.

No matter your age, there truly is something for everyone. We hope you enjoy.
