COLERAINE Borough Council will run an Irish Open Festival of entertainment next week.

Live music, street theatre, dancing and children’s entertainment will be staged mainly in Portrush and Portstewart.

Two major food providers will be situated at Kerr Street Green in Portrush.

It’s hoped that the Festival will be brought to a fantastic conclusion with a Fireworks Display from a barge on West Bay on Saturday evening, June 30. Should the weather not be kind the display will be staged from Ramore Head around 10.30pm.
