The Quiet Tree
and the Creatures of Whistleberry Forest

The creatures of Whistleberry Forest have discovered a little oak tree growing deep in the woods. However, there are no birds singing, no leaves rustling, and no animals scurrying around its trunk. This delightful music performance takes children and accompanying adults on an adventure through the forest where they explore musical soundscapes, sing, dance, and help Ornaith the owl, Sorley the snail, and Faolán the frog bring the little oak tree to life through music.

An amazing opportunity for schools to have this spectacular show visit your school for a day.

2 shows available each show can accommodate 3 classes | Ages Junior infants – 2nd class
Day Thursday | Date June 7th | Times 10.30am / 11.45am | Cost €2.00 per Student
