MOIRA in Co Down is brewing up to be the next festival venue for Northern Ireland this September. The inaugural 'Moira Calling' will be held at the Moira Demesne on Saturday September 10 with the promise of 'superb' independent music, food and drink.

Dublin duo Hudson Taylor will headline the festival organised by local events company Brown Lemonade Ltd. Brothers Harry and Alfie Hudson-Taylor are currently recording the follow-up album to their debut album Singing for Strangers.

Some 14 of the best singer songwriters and bands will be performing across two stages throughout the day. Event director Michael Ferguson said: "As well as great music, festival-goers will also have the opportunity to experience the best in Northern Irish-sourced food produce coupled with a range of the finest craft beer and cider produced by Northern Ireland's blossoming micro-brewing industry."

Children under 18 are welcome at the event when accompanied by an adult. Family tickets are available to purchase. Tickets on sale from 9am tomorrow at ticketmaster.ie and selected outlets.
