The Moon & Sixpence Puppet Theatre is delighted to be performing as part of the Aisling Children’s Arts Festival in Longford on Wednesday, 22nd October 2014. Ireland’s travelling marionette theatre will visit St Joseph’s Primary School in Longford town in the afternoon and appear in the Backstage Theatre that evening.
The Aisling Children’s Arts Festival was founded in 1998 and its aim was to provide an annual multi disciplinary week long arts festival totally dedicated to children and young people in County Longford. The ethos of the festival is to nurture and develop an artistic appreciation among young people by introducing them to a wide range of arts disciplines such as drama, music, dance and the visual arts through the medium of workshops and performances. The festival is still run by a committee of local volunteers and is dependent on funding from grant agencies and local businesses.
