Sarah Jane Cleary and Deirdre Dwyer spoke to Damien in studio about the Waterford Imagine Arts Festival.
Sarah Jane has just become the new Director of the festival and Deirdre is one of ten members on the voluntary committee.
This year marks the 21st festival which will run from October 25th to 30th.
The themes that will be explored this year include theatre, music, literature, history, and comedy. There will also be child-friendly events taking place over the six days.
Sarah Jane told Damien about how excited she is to be in her new role. She says she is happy that she could make a career out of bringing her own thoughts and ideas to life.
She aims to do this with the festival too. Her hope is to bring art and the heritage of Waterford together.
A website for the festival with all information regarding the programme is coming soon.
