Pettafiesta is a homemade 24 hour community arts festival held over two days and put together by the Corrigan family with a lot of help from family and friends. Not only are we selecting music from the best local artists but we will bring you theatre, spoken word, karaoke, dancing, quizzes and all sorts of other activities for you to join in with.
This year our theme is “make do and mend”. In this age of belt-tightening we will show you how to make your own entertainment, write and perform your own play, create your own art and pamper both body and soul on a shoestring. We will have austerity cooking demos, a crocheting masterclass, floristry from the garden, and will be recycling rubbish into works of art.
But if that is all too much effort there will be films to watch, music to listen to, gardens to wander round, delicious food to buy, local beer and cider to drink and all sorts of other entertainment to enjoy. The aim is to relax, and take 24 hours out of the daily grind.
Full details will emerge on this site over the coming weeks but please register to get our email updates, which will also put you at the front of the queue (we hope!) for tickets.
We have kept the ticket prices at “break even” levels but in the unlikely event that we make a profit we will be donating it to the Teenage Cancer Trust.
