BAFFLE FESTIVAL Festival Theme „Changing Faces‟

    Up to now the theme for the BAFFLE Festival has been sourced in the past. This year our theme is very much based on the present. 'Change' is happening everywhere at a rapid pace and in every facet of our society. The physical appearance of towns and villages all over Ireland has changed dramatically over the course of a few years. The make up of our population has changed and we now have a country made up of a variety of nationalities and languages. The face of entertainment has changed from 'seanchai' Ireland to 'rap' Ireland and everything in between. Of course BAFFLE as a

group and a Festival has evolved and changed as well over the course of its existence. So our theme

    this year is 'Changing Faces'. Good luck to all those writing for it, and 'enjoy' to all of you coming to join
