John McFadden Festival

The second annual John McFadden Festival will take place in many venues around Newport (including Newport NS) over this February Bank Holiday weekend.  For more information, visit their website:

FYI, UNDER 12s GO FREE to the big SHASKEEN CONCERT in the Church on Saturday evening


Having had some inquiries from parents regarding what workshops might be suitable for their children, the following are some suggestions (some are sold out)...

  • For Under 5's: Hokey Pokey Music is a perfect introduction to music & dance. 

  • 5-9 yrs. Boys & Girls:  Mol an Óige is ideal. Trad Arts/crafts/Singing/Music/Dancing.

  • For those that play instruments (eg. tin whistle/fiddle/accordion etc): there are Workshops in all instruments.

  • For those that don't play an instrument the Sean Nós Dancing Workshop is ideal.

All on Saturday 3rd Feb. 10am-1pm (Singing workshops are on Sunday 4th)

The workshops for the Féile Sheain Mhic Phaidin - John McFadden Festival February Bank Holiday Weekend 2024 are available to purchase on EventBrite on

Something to suit everyone!!
