The future

We have decided to stop Mannafest. There are so many other youth events out there that we have just become another choice. Mannafest paved the way for youth events for the past 20 years and we are proud of what we achieved. We wanted to get back home to the Ulster Hall, but with financial difficulties we can't afford to put on this monthly event. If you have any comments or advise then please drop us a line

Sorry to hear this. I attended Mannafest at the Ulster Hall during the time of Alastair Bennett and Johnny Parks. Funny how you remember the music? Guess Mannafest just offered something so different those days compared to most NI churches.

I believe you're right. To compete with the multitude of events out there would be simply conforming to just being "another choice."

Hope the spirit of what Mannafest set out to do can carry on in some new way for the future.

I see this is an old post, but is there any chance of a one-off Mannafest reunion?? I would love to go!
