The 2014 Earagail Arts Festival will be taking place 12 to 26 July and we have three of our festival events open for booking right now!
We are opening the festival with Fiesta, a new drama commissioned especially for Earagail. It is a celebration of the dancers, the chancers and the lovers who graced the Fiesta Ballroom, Letterkenny – the famous dancehall venue that formed a hugely important part of the social history of Donegal and the wider North West region. Fiesta runs for three nights, Sat 12 to Mon 14 July.
Little Howard’s Big Show for Kids is on Tues 22 and Wed 23 July and is suitable for children and family audiences. Little Howard is the world’s only live interactive animation. He’s won so many awards and fantastic reviews and he’s only just celebrated his 6th birthday (for the tenth year in a row)! He’s also a published author and has done lots of television stuff, like The Royal Variety Performance, The Slammer (CBBC) and Little Howard’s Big Question (BBC1) – yes, he’s even had his own television show!
Comedy for adults comes from the Lords of Strut who are Cork performers Cian Kinsella and Cormac Mohally. In their new show Chaos, they combine comedic theatrics with dance and acrobatics. Taking on the persona of celebrity-obsessed but socially impaired brothers these boys can move, they can lift, and they can make you laugh. A show with heart and muscle! It’s on Thurs 24 and Fri 25 July.
More events will be announced soon so make sure you are signed up to our newsletter for all the latest news.
