Well good riddance to 2020. What a year,ey? Well we can all take the lessons learnt from 2020 and move forward towards a brighter future of music, art , health and happiness and soon, we hope.
Last year, we pulled together as a team and proudly, pulled our first ever virtual festival together. New skills were honed, virtual galleries were built and we discovered 'outside the box' ways to present a festival. We are excited to utilise these new skills for this years festival as some of our virtual experiences were too good to not make use of again. We are hoping to have some level of normalcy by the time our turn comes around but have no fear, with or without Covid, we will be putting on a show.
Exciting times ahead :)
Looking forward to planning, plotting and networking with all you wonderful art creators and appreciators very soon.

See You In October
Mark your calendar, invite your friends and family to Westport from Oct 20th - 25th as we present the programme for Westival 2021.
Over the next few months, we will be working with artists & local venues to present with care and creativity the arts here, while adhering to strict government guidelines. The safety of our audience and artists will be the key focus across the programme.
We will celebrate the arts, we will evolve, we will be together again, and we will keep the home fires of Westival 2021 burning bright.
Performing artists can now apply to take part through our open call soon so watch this space.
Stay tuned to our socials for announcements on what's happening and when.
Finally if possible, please consider making a donation or becoming a Westival Patron over on our Support page.
With warmth & excitement.
The Westival Team.
