Every Saturday from June until August, the best regional and national Live Music Acts have performed at a free outdoor event – the Churchyard Sessions, in the shadow of the 15th century French Church on Baileys New St in the heart of Waterford’s Viking Triangle.
Acts such as Newfoundland, Jerry Fish, Thank Funk, Mount Sion Choir, Tan and Sober Gentlemen and many more have played in our truly unique setting over the past few years.

The event is a joint initiative between The Reg and The Munster for The Summer in the City initiative and follows ‘ArtBeat’ – Emerging Bands that will also play free gigs from the same stage.

Enjoy dinner in SUAS at The Reg before the event or the Churchyard Barbeque itself and enjoy additional late-night bands and resident DJ till late in one of the Reg’s 5 bars after the Churchyard Sessions.

Churchyard Sessions 2019 was a huge success. Due to Covid-19, Churchyard Sessions 2020 has been halted but will hopefully be back again, bigger and better in 2021, with some more amazing acts, right in the heart of Waterford’s Viking Triangle.
