Thanks for a great time at Interceltique

Thank you for the complimentary tickets we received for this year’s Lorient Interceltique festival via Connexion. 

27 August 2018

We had a great time with the grand parade, soiree folk and the Nuit Interceltique.

The Nuit Interceltique was spectacular with each Celtic nation performing and a grand finale with all the nations and fireworks.

Scotland and Ireland put on a super show with pipe bands and dancers; there was a brass band from Cornwall and a male voice choir (Pendyrus) and harpists from Wales.

As the guest nation, I had hoped there would be more of a focus on Wales but they were the last to perform and sang Welsh and Breton anthems. It was a great atmosphere.
