A family stroll through the town centre on the evening of July 15th will become a promenade through down-town New Orleans or Rome! Visitors to the international village will need to pay a visit to the Festival Bureau de Change to stock up on local currency before indulging in opera, gelato, pasta and chianti from Italy; moussaka, ouzo and folk music from Greece; tacos, tequila and a mariachi band from Mexico; limbo and rum punch from Guiana. As well as food, sounds and colour from Burma, Nepal, France, USA, Argentina, China and not least, Ireland, there will be loads to do for all the family.

People of all ages are welcome.
