Athlone Castle in association with Creative Ireland and Westmeath County Council, will host a programme of free events for this year’s National Cruinniú na nÓg celebrations on Saturday 11th of June.
Susan Callaghan, also known as Lady Susannah of York, a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism, will facilitate and deliver a series of Medieval dancing workshops. Children will have the opportunity to learn basic steps of two dances that became popular during the Medieval period: a basic branle or circle dance and the petits vriens or little hearts dance. There will be two dancing sessions and these will be suitable for children over the age of 6. Each session will be limited to 12 participants. The two dancing demonstrations will begin at 1pm and 3pm and will last for 45 minutes each.
This promises to be a popular event so booking in advance is essential via 090 6442130 or [email protected] as spaces will be limited.
This event is supported by Creative Ireland and Westmeath County Council.
