Festival Description

Held for the first time in 1965, the festival programme usually comprises 100-130 different events, including concerts, theatre, and dance performances, art exhibitions, literary and film events, and a variety of seminars. Opportunities for participation by amateurs and professionals, children and adults alike - playing and performing side by side. The Festival offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy a rich and varied menu of cultural fare.
