21st KILDARE DRAMA FESTIVAL PROGRAMME (1978)

Since 1958, the annual Kildare Drama Festival has been a key fixture in the cultural calendar of County Kildare and further afield. The drama festival circuit has been the starting point for many future directors, actors and technical people whilst also providing immense entertainment for audiences.

The Local Studies Department of Kildare Library Service has a selection of the programmes for the Kildare Drama Festival in their collections. The 21st Festival Programme for 1978 is now available to view here: Kildare Drama Festival Programme 1978

For a fuller history of the drama movement in Kildare Town for over one hundred years, it is well worth sourcing a copy of Pure Drama: From Behind the Spotlight: A compilation of entertainment in Kildare Town, 1880s-1950s and 50 years of the Kildare Drama Festival, 1958-2008 by Joe Connolly (published in 2010).
