If you love all things Celtic then you’ll love these Celtic inspired events popping up around The Gathering – a two day festival celebrating Celtic traditions including food, music, live demonstrations and more at the Ipswich Turf Club on May 21 and 22.
The Celtic Flyer
The Queensland Pioneer Steam Railway is running heritage train rides on The Celtic Flyer on May 22. The trains are departing the Bundamba Racecourse on the hour from 9am to 1pm while The Gathering is running next door at the Turf Club.
Celtic art workshop
Take part in a Celtic inspired art class thanks to Sip ‘n’ Dip. The class will see you painting a scene with a Celtic twist on June 18 at The Coffee Club Springfield from 5pm-8.30pm. It includes dinner and a glass of something nice!
The Rusty Nail Bar have created a Celtic Fest tapas menu inspired by The Gathering. There’s Pacific oysters with Guinness granite and shallots; an Ulster Cottage Pie (beef and Guinness pie topped with champ mash, gremolata served with house cut taties); salmon gravlax on beetroot chips with crème fraiche and sorrel and of course Guinness on tap!
Black beer, Guinness Pie and lamb shank deals
This month you can eat like a king at Brother’s Leagues Club as they’ve got a special King Henry Lamb Shank on the menu. They’ve also got Guinness available to wash it down with! But when The Gathering is on (May 21 and 22) they’ll be offering a lamb shank and Guinness pint deal for $35 and a Guinness Pie and pint combo for $25.
The prices are for members, however membership is $5 for 5 years!
