Berry Celtic Festival
The Berry Celtic Festival in 2020 is the 14th annual Festival and is on Saturday 23 May.
Last year the Berry Celtic Festival highlighted the Celtic nation of “Ireland” and introduced a number of additional features to the Program. Along with a day full of entertainment including the spectacular jousting medieval knights, there were various workshops for Irish dancing, traditional tunes for kids, Gaelic singing, instrumental sessions along with country dance. For those with energy still to burn following the Festival, you could dance the night away at the Berry Celtic Festival Dance.
Jousting has been one of the real hits with Berry Celtic Festival goers in recent years and is full of excitement. Heavily armoured noble knights gallop at each other on horseback with a clashing of lances, aiming to unseat their opponent. You can hear the thunder of hooves. And in the background, other knights resplendent in shining armour stage battles in hand to hand combat demonstrating skilful swordplay.
The Berry Celtic Festival kicks off with the grand street parade through Berry at 9.30am, with pipe bands marching in all of their distinctive kilts, together with representatives of the all of the Clans, medieval knights, and Scottish Terrier dogs, making their way to Berry Showground.
See the marching of the massed bands, musical items, Celtic fiddlers, highland dancing, enchanted singing, and of course, the battle of the medieval knights.
