Cork Midsummer Festival 2007
Cork Midsummer Festival started on the 19th of June and runs until the 30th of June. There is a whole host of events on during this time with something for everyone. The Cork Midsummer Festival website is excellent and easy to use. If you are interested in music events then click on the music icon and the same thing applies for theatre, dance, art, circus and family events. The Cork Midsummer Festival is one of the fastest growing arts festivals in Ireland. Theatre, dance, music, visual arts and circus events are taking place in a range of venues around Cork, from construction cranes to naval bases, nightclubs to residential houses, parks to cathedrals, theatres and factories. This year there are more free events than ever so drop into the festival box office on Patrick’s Street (No. 56), check out their website or ring the hotline on 021 4274077 for information about events or to make a booking. One of my favourite parts of the festival is the Spiegeltent and this year is no different. Lots of great acts are performing there including The Frank & Walters, the Cork Chamber Choir, Camille, Mick Flannery, the Sultans of Ping and many more.
