Gospel Fest is back for its fifth year, starting tonight (Thursday) and running to Sunday, August 17.

Located in the 1,000 seater marquee just off the main road between Waringstown and Banbridge, Gospel Fest has become one of the largest Christian music events of its kind in the British Isles.

Gospel Fest is a celebration of Christian music in Northern Ireland and attracts people from all over Ireland and the UK. Local hotels, guesthouses, campsites and businesses have also remarked on the positive impact Gospel Fest has had to the local economy as visitors often opt to stay in the Craigavon and Banbridge area for the duration of the Gospel Fest weekend.

The event takes place on land belonging to Roy Dreaning located on the Old Bann Road adjacent to the main Waringstown to Banbridge Road opposite the Midway Autopoint.
