Countdown on for City Spectacular Festival

Wednesday, 10th July, 2019 5:03pm

One of Cork city’s favourite festivals is fast approaching.

Laya Healthcare’s City Spectacular returns Cork this month with its biggest and most spectacular programme of events for all ages.

Fitzgerald’s Park will be transformed into one of Ireland’s busiest summer festival, running from 20-21 July where people can expect breath taking international street and circus performances, a feel good family health and wellbeing area with Laya Healthcare, delicious global flavours, live music, a vintage funfair and a plethora of free spectacular programming for all ages.

Festival Director Shell Holden said: “Building upon the wonderfully rich and much-loved 14 year history of Laya Healthcare’s City Spectacular, this year’s world-class festival line-up is bigger and bolder than ever with over 150 street performances from jaw-dropping international talent, over 35 global flavours from the very best of Ireland’s street food scene and 40 hours of free belly-laughs, side-splitters and eye-openers for ages 0-100 to enjoy.”

Laya Healthcare’s Sponsorship Manager Selda Simsek said: “It’s been a great joy to sponsor an event that has grown in depth and delivery over the past seven years. At Laya Healthcare, we promise to look after you always and giving back to our members through free family events like this is another example of how we demonstrate that promise.

“City Spectacular is a one-of-a-kind free festival filled with endless fun and entertainment for all ages to enjoy and has been the perfect platform for Laya Healthcare to connect and demonstrate our Health and Wellbeing expertise. This year we’re looking forward to some fabulous new programming which is taking shape both in our Health and Wellbeing area and across the festival, so we hope you’ll join us with your friends and family this July in Fitzgerald’s Park for yet another spectacular show.”

Dance, drum, jump and join in at Laya Healthcare’s It’s Good To Live family health and wellbeing hub.

Join social media superstar James Patrice as your host in this action-packed area where families can challenge him to a dance off...or two or three!

Speaking of dancing, families also have the opportunity to travel back to the decade of punk rock and big hair. Otherwise known as the ‘80s! Grab those neon sweatbands and get into the groove with Laya Healthcare’s Retro Sweatro fitness classes and let the dance battles begin!

See the full programme of events at Entry is free to the festival and no tickets are required.
