Welcome to 2017 Aisling Children’s Arts Festival

Welcome Everyone to the 20th Aisling Children’s Festival! How we have grown from our very first Festival! Children everywhere around the county wait with great excitement and anticipation for the Aisling Children’s Festival Brochure to arrive in their schools and homes. The Arts bring Imagination to Life and Aisling facilitates this adventure every year with thrilling theatre performances, workshops galore and toe tapping music. 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 hope to continue for the next 20 years.

The future is bright.... And the best is yet to come. Enjoy all the Festival has to offer and get inspired.
