Baboro 2011!

While we are still enthralled with all the goings on at the Mountains to Sea Festival at the moment, let's take some time to keep the excitement going. October will bring us an incredible Childrens Books Festival this year from those good people at CBI. But before I launch into that, I can't forget Baboro.
This year's Baboro Festival is now in it's fifteenth year runs from October 16 through the 23rd. It will present a world of wonder, imagination and entertain to the children of Galway through theatre, dance, literature and many other fun events. This year's theme is 'illumination' and the programme will present the work of artists, authors and companies who have 'woven light and shadow into their work.' Authors included will be Malachy Doyle, creator of many wonderful picture books such as Charley is my Darling, When a Zeeder Met a Xyder and The Dancing Tiger; Patricia Forde whose fabulous Lola series saw the addition of the second book, Hedhehogs Do Not Like Heights, as well as Citi Cearc and the new Binji (launched shortly); Alibhe Nic Giolla Bhrighde (Coco na Colgan Cairdiuil) and the reknowned Melvin Burgess. This in addition to so many fantastic performances and exhibits, workshops and readings... October is going to be a busy and wonderful month in Galway!
