Friends of Skibbereen Arts Festival


Skibbereen Arts Festival is a not-for-profit organisation run by a small but dedicated team of volunteers. Our aim is to bring world-class national and international artists to Skibbereen whilst ensuring accessibility to all by keeping ticket prices to a minimum. To help us achieve this goal we continue our ‘Friends of the Festival’ scheme where businesses and individuals can contribute towards the running costs of the festival.
