Welcome to 2016 Aisling Children’s Arts Festival

Albert Einstein once said that “Creativity is contagious, pass it on!” And that is exactly what the Aisling Children's Arts Festival strives to do. Now in its 19th year Aisling continues to be the best fun in Longford for children of all ages. Our aim has always been to enhance children’s creativity and self-esteem through the medium of the arts. Through magical theatre, creative workshops and a host of artistic activities we endeavour to capture the imagination of our young audience. We hope this year's jam packed festival with the theme of “ A Better World” will engage all those who participate in it. We greatly appreciate the support we receive from our sponsors and all those who help make the festival possible, especially our friends at Backstage Theatre and BYT. We look forward to seeing you at this year’s festival being creative and don't forget to pass it on!
