'Dream Catcher Workshop with http://www.aislingfestival.ie/ followed by Book Reading by local author Eileen Moynihan, Saturday 2nd August from 2pm, Earl Street.
This event is suited to children aged 4 to 10 years. It is a drop in workshop, younger children will need to be accompanied by an adult if workshop is very busy as they may require help.
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.'
