Cruthú Arts Festival celebrates the wealth of artistic talent in the Midlands region by creating a positive, meaningful and fun engagement with the wider community. By enriching the town with exciting cultural events, exhibitions and installations, the programme helps to improve how Longford is perceived by its residents and further afield.

The legacy of Love Longford Festival in 2013, Cruthú has grown to include pop-up galleries, street art, film, circus, traditional arts, theatre, community public arts projects as well as live music performances. Our programme showcases the work of local, national and international artists of all genres and provides opportunities to engage with the public in a variety of new and alternative performances.

Cruthú is run by a voluntary group which includes experienced local artists and creative producers whose aim is to foster a vibrant and sustainable arts profile in Longford.

Our artistic mission is to promote the arts through positive public engagement, inspire freedom of expression and awaken passion and curiosity for the arts.

Cruthú ”Art in the Heart of Ireland”
