Artists and performers
The new art at this year’s festival is brought to us by the fabulous Clancy Brothers and their team of makers. Monica Bleniek will create her usual magic with the butterfly art and dance workshop.
Killruddery Arts is charity and the Enchanted Garden is partly funded by the Arts Council.
Each summer Mount Juliet Estate hosts a lavish party for their members and this year Bespoke Events was asked manage the exclusive members event. Bespoke Events have planned a ‘boutique festival’ style event in the beautiful Walled Gardens on Mount Juliet Estate and guests and their families are invited to ‘The Enchanted Garden Party’ in the afternoon followed by a live performance by Meteor Irish Music Award winner Paddy Casey in the evening.
The Enchanted Garden Party will see Bespoke Events transform the Walled Gardens into a magical and fun space with tippees, brightly coloured Indian tents, stilt walkers, jugglers, drumming, Pimms and a BBQ, face-painters, fire breathers, a circus show and jazz along with delicious treats at a wonderful Mad Hatters Tea Party with a Queen of Hearts, looking glass cake, tweedle dumb & tweedle tea, Alices lemon curd, dormouse lemonade and the queens cream scones!
Mount Juliet have given Bespoke Events full autonomy over artistic direction so the team have been highly creative with every element of the event from the stunning invites to the eclectic entertainment. Pictures from this fabulous event to follow soon!
