A Co Fermanagh arts festival is set to come back this year in full force after being unable to operate in 2020 due to Covid 19 restrictions.
Fermanagh Live brings together a full range of creative and cultural experiences for people of all ages in the county.
Some of the events scheduled this year include a performance by Co Tyrone native singer Victoria Geelan, an evening of poetry and performance at the Ardhowen Theater and a screening hosted by the Fermanagh Film Club.
Festival President Ann McDermott told MyFermanagh it was great to be able to come together and attend artistic events again.
“The arts are a very important part of our culture here at Fermanagh and we are delighted to bring Fermanagh Live again this year,” Ann said.
“Some shows and events are going to be online, but we have a lot of live shows that people can come and see.
“There’s nothing quite like being able to get together and enjoy the arts, instead of being locked in your room.
“We’ve even noticed it in the movie club for the past two weeks, there’s no substitute for meeting in person with people you haven’t spoken to in a long time.
“This is an extremely important event that everyone is looking forward to, and we have a lot of exciting events for everyone.
The festival is scheduled to take place from Friday October 1, with a series of events scheduled throughout the weekend.
Ann added that the festival grows by showcasing local and international talent in music, dance, film, literature, comedy, carnival and visual arts.
“Fermanagh Live has been around since 2006, although we missed the start for a few years.
