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, Celbridge. 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.
Enjoy tea-time theatrics or dance in the colonnades, discover rock ‘n roll in the ballroom or tap your toes to trad with a twist, 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! Visitors come along at lunchtime and stay until last light at what is Ireland’s first site-specific arts festival.
