Open House Festival is back!
Open House Festival is back! A bit different, but with a programme of live events at last. This year’s August Festival won’t be our trademark 140+ events in 40-odd venues. Instead, we’re planning several weeks of music, comedy, spoken word and classic cinema in the beautiful surroundings of Bangor Castle Walled Garden. Events will be open air, fully seated and Covid-compliant, but weather-protected under a stretch canvas cover. We may add events in other locations if restrictions allow.
The Festival will focus on local artists from the island of Ireland. The past year has reinforced the need to support local shops, businesses and restaurants – and that includes championing local artists.
Tickets are on sale now and you can see the full line-up here.
We’ll see you very soon!
Team Open House
MORE THAN JUST A FESTIVAL
Open House is an independent charity in Bangor, County Down, creating unique events that transform people and places
We believe that music, art, culture and festival events are the regenerative force that will transform Bangor from its seafront dereliction and failed retail sector into a modern seaside town.
Drawing on the unique assets of its coastal setting, thriving community of artists and creatives, Victorian architecture, abundance of pop-up venues and proximity to Belfast, we aim to attract more visitors to Bangor and to make local people proud of their town again.
