These include educational opportunities and workshops in the fields of arts, music and the community. All are welcome.

The festival is one of the actions identified in the Our Balbriggan Rejuvenation Programme and was first organised in response to local demand for stronger adult learning opportunities and more information about education and training services available to local people.

The Our Balbriggan Rejuvenation Programme is led by Fingal County Council’s Economic, Enterprise, Cultural and Tourism Department and the festival offers both in-person and online events.

A Loves Learning Festival section on will operate as a central hub for information on all events as well as for pre-recorded videos with practical learning advice.
