This weekend sees a new  two day Arts, Music and Culture Festival taking place on Friday 14 and Saturday 15 July. It brings to life the pioneering vision of the Narrow Water Arts Group’s and with the backdrop being the grounds of the breath-taking 16th Century Narrow Water Castle it has all the ingredients of a classic.

Speaking of classics the Friday of the festival is open to families with cult classic The Goonies being screened on an outdoor Cinema situated in The Formal Gardens of the Castle.

Throughout the Friday of festival, Love Your Lough community group will be raising awareness of plastic pollution. Children will be given the opportunity to create fashion ware for the upcoming Wake The Giant Festival out of recyclable plastics and waste taken from the native Lough itself.

The Grow Wild project, which enables young designers to promote the use of ‘Green Space’ in their everyday lives for the better, are promoting their vision of natural resources, renewable materials and incorporating design to show the benefits nature can bring to our wellbeing and mental health when used in an urban setting. Its aim is to teach festival goers to use horticulture and nature in their home and work spaces for the betterment of their wellbeing.

Throughout the Friday event there will also be a willow lantern display, live street art demonstrations, Snowball Chilled DJ set and a wide variety of craft beers and food stalls.

The Saturday Event is strictly 18+. Roll With It, the ultimate Oasis tribute Act are headlining along with the Funky Monks, the leading Red Hot Chilli Peppers tribute act in UK. Local acts, Luna Arcade, The Vicunas, Kavalier and Cloakroom are also on the bill to bring the Castle to life in the midnight hours.

Speaking about the aims of the festival a spokesperson for the Narrow Water Arts group commented "‘We want to bring culture to our area through use of the arts and holistic approaches. There is an outcry in the Newry Area for these types of gatherings and it is the perfect opportunity to promote the benefits of green living in daily life.

"We have lost touch with what is truly important to our wellbeing due to urbanisation and the speed of the life we live. It is important to The Narrow Water Arts Group that we try to raise awareness to the advantages of bringing life back to basics where possible. And two days on the grounds of this beautiful forestry, with great music, great food, great awareness and most of all great craic, is certainly the best way to spend a summer’s weekend.

The spokesperson concluded "Hopefully festival goers leave with more awareness of their environment than ever before and can utilise these strengths in their lives afterward."
