Harp sponsors Féile an Phobail

The Harp Angel has taken flight at Féile an Phobail to kick start Northern Ireland’s largest arts festival.

Harp is sponsoring the popular West Belfast event, where the "big top" will host headline act UB40 in Falls Park.

The local lager will be on tap throughout the fortnight-long festival to cater for over 10,000 people expected to attend.

This year also marks the 27th anniversary of the West Belfast Féile and the organisers have pulled out all the stops, securing a stellar line-up for the event.

As well as 80s pop sensation UB40 (featuring Ali, Astro and Mickey) a host of other big names will join the line-up including The Wolfe Tones, The Human League and Country Goes West. 

Cathal O’Neill from Diageo Northern Ireland said: “We are delighted to sponsor Féile an Phobail and feel that Harp, as one of Northern Ireland’s favourite lagers, is the perfect pouring partner.

"It’s also a great way for us to give something back to the publicans who’ve supported us year in, year out and we hope that people throughout the city take the opportunity to get involved in the wide range of arts and cultural activities."

Féile Director Kevin Gamble said: "It’s great for us as a festival to have such a prestigious brand on board, but it’s also a wonderful boost for the community as a whole."
