Celtic News June 2018

No sooner is the Australian Celtic Festival weekend over than we start again. I am in awe of all the Volunteers who work incredibly hard to provide entertainment, fun and interest to our vibrant region.

There are two entirely new Festivals to tell you about this month with the Vintage Rose Festival in Glen Innes and the Peter Allen Festival in Tenterfield both holding inaugural events. Of course, there are updates for all your favourites as well. AND there is an exciting announcement from Outlandish 2018 Outlander Fan Gathering.

Celtic News May 2018

The Australian Celtic Festival is over for another year. I always feel a little bit of a let-down when it’s over. The four days goes by in a blur, but I really enjoyed myself again this year.

It’s good to look over all the photos to choose which ones to include in this Newsletter.
