Preparations for Rathangan’s first ever Fullam Fest are underway. The outdoor gig takes place on July 12 in the walled garden behind Fullams pub.
“Fullam Fest is a new venture for us and we have never undertaken anything like this before,” explained Clare Fullam, “Formally this walled garden was used as a pig market in my grandfather’s time and as children we used it as a tennis court but in recent times it’s only Indy, our very authoritative German Shepherd who has the run of the place.
“That said, I celebrated my 16th birthday with an outdoor party and some good pals played at the party on the stage in the turf shed! Ironically two of the same musicians, Mick Cross and Enda McCormack, will be playing on the big stage at Fullam Fest!”
The popular Whizz and the Special Country Band will get proceedings underway followed by Tod Doyle and the Troubled, who are making a huge impact, both on the local and Dublin scene with original songs and a really great sound.
“Finally, the fantastic trad rock phenomenon that is Bunoscionn will headline and no doubt send everyone home buzzing from a night of culture for the ears. We will have an outdoor bar and a special tuk-tuk gourmet coffee station, a cupcake stand, face-painting and all sorts of fun activities on the night,” added Clare.
Tickets are €5 and available for sale from Fullam’s.
“We are really excited to be hosting this unique event, there is a real buzz here and we are gearing up for a great night of craic agus ceoil.”
