The gala will start on Friday July 22 with music from Brendan and Marilyn at Fionnphort from 1pm, followed by the float parade that starts at Fionnphort at 6.30pm.

The Opening Dance will see Crackin’ Craic take to the stage for the second year running, with the three man band playing at Creich Hall from 9pm.
