Ranelagh Arts Festival


From the Ranelagh Arts Festival website (http://www.ranelagharts.org/) “Who We Are” section:

 ”A group of Ranelagh residents came together in 2005 to deliver an innovative and inclusive Arts Festival for the local community from 29th September to 2nd October 2005. Our objective was to establish an annual arts festival for the people of the village and beyond. The aspiration of the committee was to create a diverse programme with something for everyone. The programme featured local artists and musicians, performances by children from the area, poetry, plays and film, as well as internationally recognised artists. “

The website further describes the festival as: 

  • An Arts Festival for the community, organised by local residents;
  • Our contribution to building a sense of community and celebrating Ranelagh, past and present;
  • An opportunity to promote the importance of the arts in people’s lives;
  • A festival for all age-groups, to be enjoyed by everyone living and working in Ranelagh and surrounding areas.

Included in the offerings are events related to literary arts, theatre arts, music arts, visual arts, cinematic arts, and other genres.  The 2010 Ranelagh Arts Festival runs from September 29 through October 3, and a full online program is available at http://www.ranelagharts.org/RAF_Prog_2010_Web.pdf. With a wide variety of venues and genres, there’s surely something for everyone at this festival!
