We are once again planning to work with local schoolchildren in preparation for St Patrick’s Day Festival. Thanks to St Patrick’s Day Committee — all volunteers — we provide a storyteller and artist to help the children make props for the parade.
This year’s theme story is the tale of St Bridget: how she outwitted a king to get some land to build a monastery.
Watch out for the children on Tuesday 17th March, at celebrations in Market Square. Give them a cheer when you see them. They have worked hard on making costumes, props and banners.
Enjoy St. Patrick’s Day Festival!
If your school would like an Irish story and craft session, get in touch. We tell traditional Irish tales. We can provide extension literacy handouts and colouring pages if needed.
We are also planning a short series of Irish Studies events, including a reading by poet Ian Duhig, born in Ireland, based in Leeds. Details tbc. Watch this space, and follow us on Facebook/Twitter.
