Féile parade to bring science to the streets
SCIENCE is the theme of the 2018 Féile na Bealtaine street theatre, a key event in the Corca Dhuibhne annual Arts festival which takes place from May 3 to May 7.
Local schools have chosen aspects of science including biodiversity, marine life, and space, providing artists, schools and parents with plenty to do in the coming weeks producing props and costumes.
Giant spiders caused a bit of a stir at the workshop in Glaise Bheag this weekend. These colourful charcters will be accompanied on the streets of Dingle by a lab rat, a submarine and microscope, among others. The street theatre on Sunday, May 6 is an opportunity for the whole population from the oldest to the the youngest on the peninsula to take part and Noirín Fanning, parade co-organiser invites everyone to dress up and join the fun.
As far as the rest of the festival is concerned the programmes will be released in the coming week and on Monday, 23 the festival office will open at Moran’s Garage for ticket sales.
