FEIS: The old Irish word feis (meaning ‘a recurring feast or festival’; plural feiseanna)
A local Festival of poetry, oratory, humour, drama, storytelling, singing and music as well as dancing displays (not competition).
Come to the Hutt Valley Irish Society for a full day of entertainment!
The Feis is a ‘local’ Feis as opposed to the National Feis which concentrates more on the Irish dancing competitions.
The music, singing and drama have taken a back seat at the Feis in recent years because of the enormous popularity of Irish dancing worldwide.
The aim is to promote a healthy interest in all aspects of Irish music, storytelling, poetry and drama which were the only forms of entertainment in Ireland over the centuries.
