The Clonmel Junction Festival has been running for over 10 years. In an article with the Irish Independent, Junction Festival Director David Teevan described the festival as 'a conversation with Clonmel'. Colin Murphy pointed out that this 'conversation' is not always without controversy (Irish Independent). The festival is widely known for it's stretching of the boundaries of music and theatre every year, and this is certainly evident again this year with a number of edgey acts lined up, including the controversial German play, The Golden Dragon, and Hannah Mulder's The Girl with the Iron Claws. An informative and decorative new website has been set up recently (www.junctionfestival.com) from which tickets can be bought online. The festival is also striving to be more innovative with its choice and variety of venues this year. For example, for the Nicole and Martin show, Mick Delahunty Square is set to be 'transformed into a magical fairytale world' (South Tipp Today) and a huge tent is set to be erected to host performances. The Arts Cafes, which have been popular in previous years, will return again this year as outlets for arts, crafts, spirituality, well-being and a sense of community spirit. So, if you're looking for something to do this July, 'whether you are looking for award-winning theatre, rock, world music, comedy or just a bit of fun' (South Tipp Today), the Junction Festival is the ideal outlet for you.
