Once again the Beechworth Celtic Festival is set to attract the crowds of Celtic lovers to Beechworth with the Beechworth Old Gaol Tattoo again featuring on the Saturday Night. The theme of the Tattoo is the celebration of Armistice Day in World War 1 – music and selected stories from the era re-enacted through the eyes of a family between 1914 and 1918. It’s the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day on the Sunday.
