Lunchtime Recitals

21, 24, 25, 26, 27, 30 October |  1, 2, 3, 4 November

The very popular Lunchtime Recitals provide an insight into the artistic personality of some of  the principal singers of the Festival and are a way to ‘meet’ them in an informal setting. In the beautiful and acoustically excellent eighteenth ­century church of St Iberius in the centre of Wexford, audiences appreciate the musical versatility of solo singers who perform a wide variety of music from across the repertoire, including operatic arias, lieder, oratorio, concert and popular songs. One of the delights of attending a Lunchtime Recital is that the programme is not advertised  beforehand, so everyone shares the same degree of anticipation and expectation. Unsurprisingly, the Lunchtime Recitals sell out very quickly. The artists and their performance dates will be announced at the beginning of the Festival.

1.05 p.m.

Tickets €15/€20*

Ireland’s Ancient East – Wander through Time in your own immersive journey of 5,000 years of European History

Ireland’s Ancient East is a unique touring region taking in an amazing 5,000 years of history in the East and South of Ireland.  From passage tombs like Newgrange to Palladian Mansions like Powerscourt and Castletown; from monastic sites to medieval castles and high crosses harking back to Early Christian Ireland, nowhere in Europe offers such a wealth of heritage in such an intimate geographical space.
