The Five Lamps Arts Festival returns. Since 2007 as one of the main festivals in Northside Dublin. Celebrating the Five Lamps landmark and surrounding community, this festival will showcase a range of art forms including literature, dance, music, visual art and theatre. The festival is a creative encounter at the heart of an inner-city community. The mission of this annual festival is to promote community development and social inclusion through the arts, and to showcase the uniqueness of the area to residents and visitors.
The geographic location of the Festival centres around the Five Lamps – a decorated lamp post with five lanterns dating from around 1880. The Five Lamps stand on an island at the junction of Portland Row, North Strand Road, Seville Place, Amiens Street and Killarney Street, in Dublin's north inner-city. Through the traditions and ambience of this historic location and community the Five Lamps Arts Festival celebrates all that is good about art, artists, performers and community. We are proud to include in our programme anyone with a story to tell and a venue willing to host them.
