Galway’s children’s festival launches

Two weeks of music, theatre, dance, books, and art in October - and all for children

Today marks the launch of the 24th annual Baboró International Arts Festival for Children, with young Galway audiences set to enjoy two weeks of music, theatre, dance, art, and a wild ride of fun for the imagination.

The festivals runs from Monday October 5 to Sunday 18, and among the highlights will be Bell X1’s Paul Noonan presenting his children’s show The Electric Kazoo; the Bewley’s Café Theatre’s Wilde Stories; Cahoots NI’s new way of presenting theatre in The University of Wonder and Imagination; and live performances for children with additional needs.

“This year’s festival acknowledges the bravery of our incredible children who have journeyed with us through this bizarre time,” said Aislinn Ó hEocha, Baboró executive artistic director. “We have worked to create a programme that recognises how vital our young people are to our communities, how healing the arts can be and how creativity can help us all to make some sense of this world.”
