It’s Wicklow Gaol’s 20thBirthday & we are celebrating by throwing an incredible FREE party for the people of Wicklow on June 21stfrom 3pm-6pm.
There’s FREE entry to the Wicklow Gaol Visitor Experience, Free Facepainting, an Ice-cream Van serving Free ice-cream cones, free popcorn, spot prizes and plenty of treats – and a very special live performance from members of Xquisite – the ‘Golden Buzzer’ dance troopwho shot to fame on Ireland’s Got Talent earlier this year.
We’re also doing some cash give-aways throughout the day in the form of crisp €20 Euro notes to mark the 20 years since the opening of Wicklow Gaol in 1998.
We’ll also have free balloons, soda, a live radio broadcast with East Coast FM, flags, bunting – you name it! And of course a massive Birthday cake with 20 candles that we’ll need your help with!
And what about the grown-ups? Well Wicklow Gaol is throwing a FREE evening BBQ for them from 7pm. Our friends in The Jailer’s Rest Bistro have a delicious summer barbecue for all & there’s live music from 7pm ‘til late.
Visitors from all over the world come to Ireland’s Ancient East to hear the stories that echo in the walls of Wicklow Gaol. Stories that shock, grip …and belong to your community.
That’s why it’s so important to us to celebrate our twentieth anniversary with the people of Wicklow.
Thursday June 21stis a great opportunity to return for a visit and enjoy one of Ireland’s best and most interactive experiences & take a journey back through 200 years.
