Festival Description

The Performance Corporation has launched their biggest ever adventure — BIG HOUSE Festival. Over August Bank Holiday weekend, they’re throwing open the doors of Castletown House for what promises to be a completely new festival experience, with a uniquely Performance Corporation twist — and we’d love you to join us!

BIG HOUSE is the summer festival you’ve been waiting for — A cultural carnival of arts, music, film and entertainment in the magical surroundings of Castletown House and parklands, in Celbridge, Co. Kildare.

Visitors come along at lunchtime and stay until last light at what is Ireland’s first site-specific arts festival. From ages 1-100 there is something for everyone at BIG HOUSE. Discover rock ‘n roll in the ballroom or tap your toes to trad with a twist. Enjoy tea-time theatrics or dance in the colonnades, and picnic on the lawn as an opera plays out before you. Pause by the silver screen, or bathe in the sounds of a classical quartet by the lake. And later get lost in a forest full of mechanical birds, or speak your mind at the Big House Parliament. Explore the house and your imagination!

At BIG HOUSE there’s a new experience around every corner, whether you’re looking for top-drawer culture and entertainment, fab food and drink, or a daytrip with a difference in extraordinary surroundings.

BIG HOUSE Festival is an antidote to the standard summer festival offering great value for money, an electric atmosphere and a jam-packed schedule. There really is something for everyone and day tickets are priced at a very reasonable rate or you can buy a family pass.
