The ever popular Brownlow Festival has been officially launched.

The festival will take place from August 27 to September 3 and will kick off with a fantastic family fun day at Brownlow Hub on Saturday August 27 with lots of fun-filled activities including face painters, balloon modellers, circus acts, magic shows and a climbing wall. A great way to enjoy the last Saturday before the new school term starts.

Over the week there will also be a host of other events for everyone including an inventive art exhibition, relaxing picnic at Moyraverty Centre, active assault course on the lakes, nostalgic vintage tea dance, mindfulness colouring workshop and a tasty cookery demonstration. The week of events concludes with the free Festival at the Lakes on Saturday September 3 at Craigavon Lakes. The event will offer a range of activities including a daring dragon boat race, archery, climbing wall, tug of war, BBQ and music to while away the afternoon.

The festival, organised by Brownlow Festival Committee, and a range of statutory organisations including Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council, has been funded by the a grant from Awards for All through the Big Lottery Fund.
