Columbanus Concert at St Columbanus Church

Columbanus Concert at St Columbanus Church


The annual Columbanus Festival, which commemorates the life and legacy of Columbanus, takes place on 16 and 17 November 2019. This year, the Columbanus Concert will be held in St Columbanus Church, Ballyholme, on Saturday 16 November, 7.00pm –10.00pm. The programme will feature Cappella Caeciliana, a Belfast based chamber choir, and Celtic Storm, a group of gifted and award winning traditional Irish musicians, singers and dancers.

Alderman Deborah Girvan, one of the organisers of the Festival said, “We are delighted to bring the Columbanus Concert to St Columbanus Church, Ballyholme. We have a wonderful programme of local talent that will fill the church with spine–tingling music, song and dance. In addition, we will be using the church for another event on Sunday 17 November when Tony Carver, a member of the congregation, will give a talk on the beautiful stained glass windows of the church at 2.00pm. I would like to thank Rev Simon Doogan for his warm welcome and agreeing to let us use the church as a venue for some of our events.”
