“The festival has nurtured a strong symbiotic relationship with Sherkin Island itself and its residents. The trust the residents have imbued in the organisers has allowed them to embed the festival into various locations around the Island, such as: St Mona’s Church, Horseshoe Bay Quarry, and the Sherkin Community Hall, alongside the main base on the land of Sherkin North Shore.”
Now in its fourth year, the festival will run from Thursday May 30 to Sunday June 2. Click here for more and check out the film below.
