    THE organisers behind the 20th annual Imagine Arts Festival say they are delighted with its success and audience feedback.

    A full programme of events took place last month across the city, offering a showcase of multi-disciplinary arts events which also included Waterford Writers’ Weekend.

    Festival Manager Nora Boland said: “Our 20th annual festival was a huge success and we are delighted to have been able to host our hybrid programme of events, support the artists and bring live events to audiences at venues across Waterford.

    thrilled to be in a position to see live events return

    “The Pandemic has seen the arts sector decimated and last year’s festival was held completely online. We were therefore thrilled to be in a position to see live events return and the arts celebrated once again.”

    Some of the festival big names included authors Megan Nolan, Sophie White, Seamas O’Reilly and Ronan Hession and comedian Colm O’Regan took to the stage for a much-needed dose of comedy at the Theatre Royal.
