Sunflowerfest goes steampunk

Victorian steampunk has been announced as the theme of this year’s Sunflowerfest, which will take place on Tubby’s Farm, Hillsborough, from July 31 to August 2.

Organisers of Northern Ireland’s leading ‘festival for everyone,’ have kicked off their 2015 season and are inviting guests to take part in the warm festival community, and discover the very best music and cultural offerings

There will be performances and attractions for all ages and backgrounds and guests can explore the Victorian carnival atmosphere, with a costume competition for the best dressed guests, and a Steampunk version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Vanessa Magowan, event organiser said: “With more guests visiting Tubby’s Farm each summer, we strive to make each year different and more memorable than the one before.

“This year we look forward to working with our new charity partner, Habitat for Humanity and welcoming back some of our favourite organisations including RSPB, Ulster Wildlife and The Big Lunch in our schedule of events and activities.
