Welcome to the 53rd Annual
Birr Vintage Week & Arts Festival
14 - 20 Aug 2021
Details coming soon!
We were one of the first festivals to migrate successfully online last year. In 2021 we are planning a hybrid mix of in-person and online events. (subject to change nearer the time, adhering to the latest social distancing rules). Programme out early August.
Have your say!
How do you see the Heritage of Birr?
This Interpretative Strategy will be an important cog in the wheel of developing the heritage offering of Birr town. Its priority is identifying the key themes and supporting stories that we can all invest in going forward. A genuine community consultation process is currently beginning and it is important that everyone is given an opportunity to participate and be heard. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey to have your voice counted.
