Summer music series

Families relax and listen to music at Castle Ward, Co. Down

What better way to spend a summer Sunday afternoon that listening to live music in a beautiful outdoor setting? Join us at Castle Ward this summer for our summer music series.

We'll be enjoying live music on Sundays throughout the summer between 2.30pm - 5pm in the tranquil surrounds of the gardens at Castle Ward.

With a range of genres on offer over the summer, there'll be an afternoon to suit everyones musical tastes, from the classic dixieland jazz of the Martello Jazz Band, the singer/songwriter take on pop classics by Deborah Fitzsimmons, traditional accordian tunes of the long established Baillies Mills Accordian Band to the modern bluegrass of the Knott String Pine Band.

On the day

Bring a picnic to really enjoy the estate, or relax and pick up some treats from the Coach House Tea-room. Head out on a walk around the extensive trails, stop in at the Barn to let the kids enjoy our ride-on tractors and farmyard activities, and explore nature on our Secret Shore Trail.

In the event of adverse weather conditions, the music will be moved to the tea-room area. Please note that dogs are not allowed in the tea-room, but seating is provided in the courtyard. Please call Castle Ward on 028 4488 1204 on the day if you are not sure whether the event will be taking place outdoors.
