Wicklow Venues To Share In Government Funding To Help Hold Concerts And Gigs

The Harbour Bar in Bray and the Whale Theatre in Greystones are among a number of venues nationwide that will share in government funding worth €25 million to help gigs and concerts happen this year.

Electric Picnic, Body and Soul, Sea Sessions and PaircLife by Independence are among the festivals to get funding.

It also includes money to hold events at the Olympia, the Gaiety and Bord Gais Theatres along with financial support for a number of touring circuses.

The Live Performance Support Scheme aims to provide money for live events to take place even with reduced attendances.

Minister for Arts and Culture Catherine Martin says small and large events will be funded.
