Tales of the Past: Celebrate Lughnasa with myth, music and meal

Enjoy an evening of myth, music and exceptional home cooked food on Friday August 4 at the Navan Centre and Fort, Armagh, to celebrate the Celtic festival of Lughnasa, culminating in an amazing fire ceremony.

With storytelling from Gráinne Holland, music from Bog Bodies and An Fuaim and food provided by Safari Banbridge, this is sure to be a fantastic evening of entertainment. Taking inspiration from some of Ireland’s great mythological tales, Gráinne combines storytelling and song in her performance specifically tailored for this evening.

Bog Bodies are an alternative folk band with their songs charged with energy from the ancient megalithic sites and are often ethereal and Celtic in theme. Their genre-bending, high-energy folk sound is somewhere between Christy Moore, Kíla and Rage Against The Machine with a dash of psychedelia for good measure.

An Fuaim is the support act for this evening; an amazing local collective of young musicians and dancers.

Tickets include barbecue style home-cooked food from Safari Banbridge, with a choice of meats, seasonal salads, sauces and relishes, crushed salt and peppered baby potatoes and breads. Vegetarian and vegan options are also available followed by a choice of homemade dessert. Feel free to bring your own bottle.
