Cuirt Festival Children's Events
Cuirt International Festival of Literature launches in Galway this evening.... which means festival season in Galway is well and truly under way. For the kids, there are a few events well worth pointing out. While school children in the local area are being treated to the Fighting Words workshops and to the wonderful Marita Conlon McKenna, there are a couple of general events on Saturday, 16th April, and since the schools are out for their Easter break early on Friday, might as well start the break off with a bang.
At 11.00am in the Galway Arts Centre, there will be a Bookmark Making workshop led by Sibeal Ni Chuirnin. Children will design and make bookmarks, which will be laminated and ready for collection after the workshop. Admission is €6.00
At 12.30pm at the Nun's Island Theatre, the wonderful Clare Muireann Murphy will treat her audience to Mad Myths for the Strong Hearted. Clare is a Galway based storyteller with world-reknown. She regularly tours Europe and America, intriguing her audiences of all ages with tales from folklore and mythology. If you haven't seen Clare yet, you really should. Her shows are always fascinating, exciting and an absolute joy.Suitable for ages 8 - 12 years; admission is €8/€6.
