Moira’s calling to festival fans with plans in place for a feast of food, drink and music this coming September.

Local Events Company Brown Lemonade Ltd is hoping audiences will travel from across Northern Ireland and beyond to soak up what it expects to be a vibrant atmosphere and sample “a superb range of independent music, food and drink”.

The company recently launched its first ever ‘Moira Calling’ event with the announcement that Dublin duo Hudson Taylor would headline the inaugural festival as one of 14 acts performing across two stages at Moira Demesne on Saturday, September 10.

Brothers Harry and Alfie Hudson-Taylor, currently recording the follow-up to their debut album ‘Singing for Strangers’, will play ‘Moira Calling’ as part of a busy summer schedule.

Established last year, Brown Lemonade Ltd is hailing the music line-up as a selection of the best singer-songwriters and bands, hand-picked to reflect its ethos of promoting “all that is good in the Northern Ireland music scene” while passionately showcasing the best of local food and drink.

Director, Michael Ferguson, said: “We are super excited about our first ‘Moira Calling’ Festival.

“We think there is something at ‘Moira Calling’ for everyone.

“We hope to fuse all the things that people love about festivals, without them having to travel too far.

“Our picturesque venue in Moira was selected as it is very accessible to people from both the North and South of Ireland.

“We feel ‘Moira Calling’ is an opportunity to unveil some of Northern Ireland’s finest musical talent.

“To compliment this we have invited selected artists from further afield to play.

“As well as great music, festival-goers will also have the opportunity to experience the best in Northern Irish-sourced food produce, coupled with a range of the finest craft beer and cider produced by Northern Ireland’s blossoming micro-brewing industry.”
