The Bulmers Lounge will return to the Body & Soul festival next month, offering festival-goers a respite from the main music programme with comedy, theatre, poetry and plenty of other musical treats, for good measure.

Some of the acts in the lounge - which is nestled in the Walled Garden of Ballinlough Castle - include comedy act Lords of Strut, urban street-funk band Stomptown Brass, Tracy Ryan's critically-acclaimed production of Trainspotting, Poets of the Revolution and more.
