The Lusk Summer Festival took place recently and was a day-long event filled with cultural experiences, a large variety of home-made craft vendors, food vendors, music, entertainment and kid-friendly activities ranging from Grasshoppers International Early Years Arts activities, fairground games, local sport club demonstrations and so much more.
The main stage hosted music acts such as Eva Campbell off The Voice UK. Buckshot Lariat, Jordan Dennis and Revolution Remains, along with the wonderful Black Raven Pipe band, the local gospel choir and DJ Joe who kept the day ticking along nicely.There were classic cars on display and free yoga sessions for all to enjoy..There was a multicultural area for local groups to show aspects of their cultural backgrounds to the rest of the community. Also to ensure that everyone was able to enjoy the day, the festival organisers together with the recently formed Autism Friendly Towns Working Group and with the support of AsIAm organised a Sensory Friendly Area at the event. This area, with reduced stimulation, was available to autistic individuals and their families to enjoy some quiet time together.
