The Allingham Arts Festival takes place in Ballyshannon, County Donegal, each November. The aim of the festival is to bring a wide range of arts activities to the community, celebrating local, national and international artists of many disciplines. In recent years, we have hosted poetry and writing events, concerts, documentary film screenings and discussions, lectures in design, panel discussions on the creative economy, craft workshops, art and photography exhibitions, historical lectures and much more. Recent guests have included Anne Enright, Theo Dorgan, Afric Mc Glinchey, Garry Keane, Jamie D'Alton, Wes Sewell and Nishaw Ali amongst others. 

We would like to hear from artists, writers, poets, musicians, digital media and creative media artists and producers, kids entertainers, educators, film-makers, producers, workshop facilitators, entrepreneurs, crafts people, theatre companies, and anyone else with a suitable event to propose!
