This will be the seventh annual Bangor Festival, and the 20th year of Open House, which originated in Belfast in 1999 and played a pivotal role in the redevelopment of the Cathedral Quarter.

Open House Festival Bangor runs from August 1-31, and is the only month-long festival in Ireland – with around 140 music, theatre, book, comedy, spoken word, film, food and drink, and visual art events. The full programme for the 2019 festival will be released in May.
