Summer Music Sundays

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?

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.

There'll be an afternoon of music to suit everyone's taste, from Jazz classics from the Guinness Jazz Band, alternative takes on pop hits from singer-songwriter Brendan McKenna, to an afternoon of swing-infused hits from Rythm and Fury.

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.

Normal admission applies, members free.

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 outdoor 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.
