Take a trip down memory lane.

On this page we’re reelin’ back the years! With 30 years of Féile to look back on, it’s safe to say we have plenty of photos and footage to document the years gone by!

Take a trip down memory lane with our selection of pictures and videos of past Féile’s below!

Reelin’ Back: 30 Years of Féile

30 years of Féile.

This year marked a momentous milestone in Féile history, as we reached the 30th year of Derry’s biggest community and arts festival! The above video showcases some clips from past Féile’s, from right back to the beginnings in 1993 all the way up to present day.

Reelin’ Back – Féile 1993-95

Where it all began.

Reelin’ Back – Féile 1998

One of the earliest Féile’s we have on film. How much things have changed since then!

Reelin’ Back – Féile 1999

We’re taking it back over 2 decades with this video of Féile 1999! Are there any people you recognise? Are there any places that have changed or just aren’t there anymore? Let us know in the comments!

Reelin’ Back – Féile 2004

Do you have any memories of Féile 2004?

Reelin’ Back – Féile 2005-2008

We’re heading back to the mid-late 2000’s with this one. Who remembers any of the Féile’s between 2005 and 2008?

Reelin’ Back – Féile 2022

This was a big one. Féile 2022 marked the return of the first full programme since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and was also the 30th year of the festival! It was truly one to remember!

Reelin’ Back – Féile 2023

Another one! Our most recent festival so far, Féile 2023 saw our biggest circus shows and performances yet with the ‘The Big Family Night Out’ format, as well as the premiere of many films based on local figures, such as ‘Freedom & The Sesh: A Squarebear Joint’, ‘Trojans: Unus Sumus’ & ‘Be Yourself?’

A large selection of photos from the Féile can also be found on our Facebook page.
