Having battled back from cancer surgery, Belfast singer-songwriter Brian Kennedy will headline the Friends' Goodwill Festival in Larne on Saturday, May 11.

His performance will be the highlight of a packed two-day open air festival of music, dance, food, family entertainment, children's activities, exhibitions, and Ulster Scots history and culture. There will also be street theatre.

The main events take place at the Market Yard, with four music acts performing each day.

On the Sunday at Curran Park, a public remembrance service will be held at the bronze memorial marking the departure of the Friends' Goodwill ship 300 years ago, the first recorded migrant voyage from our shores bound for the United States.
