Welcome to Ballymena Festival

The Festival normally takes place during February and March in the new Braid Arts Centre in Ballymena which has modern facilities for most major performing arts. The Festival provides a wide opportunity for performers at all stages of music, speech, drama and dance. There are two Gala Nights : the Instrumental Festival Night on the first Saturday evening of the Music weeks. The Vocal and Prizewinners Gala on the Saturday evening following the Vocal classes features performances by the Music, Speech and Drama, Irish and Modern Dance sections.

In making plans to run Ballymena Festival in 2022, the Committee is aware of continuing uncertainty regarding relaxation of Covid 19 social distancing guidelines. We therefore plan to allow entries to be submitted until 30th November 2021 without payment. Payment should now be made for these entries by 30th January 2022.

Please note that the Section Secretaries, at their discretion, reserve the right to cancel or combine classes to ensure the most efficient running of the Festival.
