Perfect venue for April Sounds

The Medieval Mile Museum was the perfect venue for April Sounds. The venue gave all in attendance a true Kilkenny welcome, immersing the audience into Kilkenny's culture and history while providing a beautiful setting for the artists to showcase their music. The sound was incredible. The outdoor space was ideal for pop up performances throughout the day too. Anne-Marie, Sarah, Grace and all the team at the museum were so helpful and accommodating from the lead up to and on the day of the concerts.
