Gala Exhibition in Newtownards

If you are around Newtownards over the next few weeks, why not drop into the Visitor Information Centre and have a look at the Portaferry Gala Exhibition? Celebrating 50 Years of the festival, there are pictures, videos, old programmes to browse and many Portaferry Gala memories will come flooding back. “Yesteryears of the Gala” is running from 3rd to the 24th of June.

What’s YOUR favourite song – and why?

As it’s the 50th Gala we’ll be running some special features on ferry fm this year – as part of this we’d like to know YOUR favourite songs from the last 50 years – if we play your song and read out your message, you’ll win a prize…so get thinking and let us know what your fav song, from the last 50 years is, and why it means something to you. Click here to add your song.

Gala 2017 needs YOU!

Portaferry Gala Committee really need extra volunteers to help us out during the week of the festival. If you can spare a few hours, on any day of the week, to help with registration for events, set up, making goodie bags or even making sandwiches across the many events we serve refreshments at, please click here and register your details and who knows, a gala T-Shirt could be yours 🙂
