Athlone Castle is delighted to announce its Halloween event, Rattling Bones and Tombstones Storytelling and Puppetry Shows on Saturday 27th October.
Children can get prepared for Halloween fun with Storygate in the Upper Keep of the Castle, with four story and puppet sessions taking place at 12pm, 2pm, 3.30pm & 5pm. The first and third sessions (12pm & 3.30pm) will be suitable for children from 4 – 7 years in age, and the second and last sessions (2pm & 5pm) will be suitable for 8 years and older.
Your ‘little monsters’ will be entertained over 45 minutes with slightly spooky, family friendly stories of graveyards, pranks and silly ghosts by storytellers Michael and Simone from StoryGate with special guest appearances from Vinny the handsome Vulture. Children and adults alike will enjoy the fun experience of storytelling in the unique atmosphere of a creepy castle, steeped in history. Athlone Castle encourages all children to get in the mood for Halloween by wearing their costumes to the storytelling and puppetry sessions!
Admission to the event for children aged 4 -15 years will cost €5, with €3 for accompanying adults. Family tickets will cost €12 (2 adults with 2 children), and €22 (2 adults with 3/4 children). Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Goodies bags are included in the price. Places are limited, and booking in advance is essential to avoid disappointment.
