Trad enthusiasts might be particularly interested that we have fiddle virtuoso Benedict Morris and his band playing on Sunday night in our Traditorium.

We will also be hosting an arts exhibition of superb artists, designers and craft people plus many other festival attractions with music sessions aplenty around the town.

As the name suggests ‘Traditude’ is a community based Music & Arts Festival with the aim of bringing the best of Trad and Folk music and art exhibitors to West Offaly.
