Hello and welcome to Zero Degrees Festival 2024

For over 10 years Zero Degrees has been at the cultural beating heart of Louth. This year will be a fallow year for us, allowing us to take stock, reach out for new people and different ideas, and re-group for 2025 with fresh impetus. Several new arts projects have appeared in the town recently, and we feel they present an exciting opportunity for the festival to increase in size and the range of events.

We will still be supporting a handful of established events organised by some of our key partners in the town for 2024, as well as continuing to help publicise other groups’ events via our social media channels.

We’ll be in touch for 2025, and look forward to your continued support, helping Zero Degrees to continue as the main umbrella organisation for the many dedicated local groups whose work creates the rich and varied cultural landscape of our wonderful town, making Louth a better place for us all.

A big thank you to the volunteers, sponsors, councillors, venues and organisers who have supported us so far, and to everyone who has come along to our events. Without the help of volunteers, the festival can't thrive and grow. If you are interesting in becoming a volunteer, in whatever capacity, please do get in touch by clicking here.
