Ballymena Festival of Music, Speech and Dance will celebrate its first hundred years with a grand Centenary Concert on Saturday, February 13.

To mark the Centenary there will be an exhibition on the history of the Festival, as well as a commemorative book funded by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The highlight of the celebration for many, however, will be the Centenary Concert featuring past performers from across the decades and will be headlined by singing sensation, ‘The Priests’. The MC for the evening will be the renowned adjudicator, Marilynne Davies, who has been a good friend of the Festival for many years.

Tickets are now available and can be bought via The Braid Box Office, telephone 028 25635077.
