Cavan Drama Festival 17th – 25th March

Sat 17th March - Sun 25th March
8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

A Diamond in the Making, looking forward to a Dramatic Anniversary…

The first Cavan Drama Festival ran from March 24th to 31st 1946 – making it the second longest running in the country with Tubbercurry just one year older. This year we look forward to the 72nd Festival but with an eye to the future… and the realisation that in just three years time, this tenacious, dramatic endeavour will celebrate three quarters of a century promoting amateur drama – Cavan should be rightly proud!
