Speaking about the return of the Tafelta Festival, the Chair of the Council, Councillor Córa Corry said,
I am delighted that the Tafelta Festival will return to Magherafelt town centre again this year. This exciting and vibrant festival celebrates our local heritage. The event will undoubtedly bring additional footfall to the town, allowing us to showcase the unique retail and hospitality offering Magherafelt is famed for. I look forward to experiencing the hive of activity and special buzz in the town from 11am to 5pm on Saturday 6 August!
