More than just a festival…

Open House is an independent charity in Bangor, County Down, creating unique events that transform people and places

COVID-19 ANNOUNCEMENT
Due to the current health crisis, the Open House office is closed temporarily. However, we’re still working away behind the scenes from our kitchen table. 

SEASIDE REVIVAL AND AUGUST FESTIVAL
Due to the ongoing Government restrictions, and the uncertainty over when they might be lifted, we’ve taken the difficult decision to suspend for the time being any further planning for our Seaside Revival Vintage Festival in July or our month-long Bangor festival in August. This is a very difficult time for the events sector – for local artists, venues, our support staff and suppliers. We are working closely with Ards & North Down Borough Council and other funders and be assured that, once restrictions on public gatherings are lifted, we will quickly spring back into action and deliver events to support the recovery of the town.

YEAR ROUND CONCERTS
All our shows in the months April to July are currently being rescheduled or cancelled. If you have a ticket for any of these concerts we will contact you directly by email. If your show is rescheduled, you can choose whether to keep your ticket for the new date or get a full refund. If your show is cancelled, you will automatically get a full refund. Please bear with us while we work our way through this process. And thanks for your understanding and patience. 

Every day we’re thinking about all our customers, supporters, local businesses and friends. Hope you’re all ok. If there’s anything we can do to help, or you just want to contact us, please feel free to email me on info@openhousefestival.com 

See you on the other side.
