Summer Swing Sessions Return!



With 53 Liners due to visit Cobh this year the Cobh and Harbour Chamber is gearing up to run the Summer Swing series of free Concerts and fun filled events to delight visitors and passengers to the Cobh and Harbour area.

In 2009 over twenty-two bands performed on the beautifully restored bandstand in the prom.  This year with even more liners visiting Cobh, the Cobh and Harbour Chamber hope to build on last years exciting programme and offer an even more varied and full list of entertainment. Kicking off the Summer Swing this year on 29th April 2010 the Cobh and Harbour Chamber will have a host of various musical entertainment lined up to coincide with the maiden visit of the Eclipse Celebrity cruise liner which will be docked at the Deep Water Quay over night.  There will also be free entertainment including bouncy castles, face painters, clowns and also the local farmers market and arts and crafts.

In addition to the normal Summer Swing Sessions on the weekends throughout the summer, the Chamber will be extending the Summer Swing activities to three other dates including 30th May and 29th August when the Independence of Seas will be docked in Cobh, the 24th July for the visit of the Queen Victoria.  On these dates in addition to the concerts there will be free family entertainment and a food/crafts fair.
