The original organisers and some of the artists from Ireland’s best multi-disciplinary arts festival will gather to share memories of Kilkenny Arts Week and Festival from 1974 on.

They will meet with friends and former colleagues, some of whom have remained very close, others have not met in decades. This is also an opportunity to welcome back to County Kilkenny, Irish abstract artist, Barrie Cooke.

Among those attending the reunion will be key organisers, committee members and artists, for example Sonja Landweer and Francis Tansey, to name but a few.

The event will take place at Tynan’s Bridge House Bar on Sunday, April 28 at 4pm.
