The aim of this project was to create the 'Ballynahinch Harvest & Country Living Festival’


Country Lifestyle Exhibitions has delivered over 50 major outdoor events over the last 35 years. So when Down District Council wanted a partner to help launch a new two-day festival to rebrand Ballynahinch as a gateway destination for rural tourism in the county, they approached CLE. The result was a twin locus event – partially funded by DRAP – that celebrated both the country and rural ways of life.


Funding from DRAP allowed the applicant to carry out PR and advertising, rent tents and other equipment, and deliver a two-day festival.
