WEXFORD GIGS, SHOWS ... LATEST
News

Approaching Wexford town from Ardcavan, passing the turn off for Crosstown and there it is: the Slaney estuary opening up and the outline of the town across the water; on and over the bridge, the town's iconic skyline now before you, church spires and bell-towers with the ships in front. Is there a better entrance into a town than this? Right now, that picture is further enhanced by an exotic looking structure on the quays, that for a couple of weeks each October, tells you that the Wexford Spiegeltent Festival is open for business.

Hot on its heels come the Wexford Festival Opera and Wexford Fringe Festival which commence later in the week.
