Children from Junior - 2nd classes are invited to join Ceol Connected for a special first-look at their show - The Far Field. In June, Ceol Connected will be rehearsing their new show at Draíocht Arts Centre, and this is an opportunity for children to go 'behind the scenes' to see what happens in the rehearsal room. They will have a chance to meet the musicians, the puppeteer, the director, and even the puppets! The musicians will share some of the music and songs from the show, and the children will have a chance to ask some questions afterwards.
What is The Far Field about?

Join Lonán on his quest filled with magical traditional music, puppetry, and storytelling to the enchanted 'Far Field'.
