Lots happening in Portaferry in the run up to Christmas. Pick up a leaflet available in many local shops.
A big thank you to everyone who attended this year’s AGM. Kindly facilated by Councillor Joe Boyle, a new set of festival Directors have been appointed and can start finalising plans for Gala 2020.
We are sad to say one of the Gala’s longest serving members, David Fitzsimmons, has passed away.
A regular sight throughout Gala Week, Davy was always on hand to help at events or about the stage.
Our thoughts are with Mamie and his family. May he Rest In Peace.
The Gala Committee invites you to make suggestions for events for Gala 2020. Comment on the Portaferry Gala facebook page, the Gala website guestbook or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are working on collating photographs for publishing on our website from a number of different photographers. In the meantime some photographs can be viewed on our Facebook page. Click on the link below.

We hope everyone has a great time over the next seven days, for full information on our events, check out the Gala programme (link in the menu) and to stay in touch with all things Portaferry, stay tuned to ferry fm, our very own festival radio station, broadcasting from the town and covering all things “Gala”. As always thanks to everyone who has worked so hard over the last few months, to our Sponsors, big and small, without whom Gala Week just couldn’t happen. Have fun, everyone.
Ferry FM plans to launch programming again, very shortly. The station is now based in it’s new home at the Recreational Hub, beside the Sailing Club.
If you have ever listened to the radio and thought “I could do that!”, please do get in touch.
If you are passionate about a topic, music, have an idea for a programme, or would just like to help out, let us know now.
Full training will be given and there will always be a producer on hand to help you out.
