Glendalough Festival 2015

Glendalough Arts Network is well advanced with preparations for their Glendalough Festival 2015.  This will be held on Sat Aug 29th 2015 on the green at back of the Glendalough Hotel – same as last year.  As well as an even bigger selection of Arts and Crafts stalls we hope once again to have our huge Community Drum, Music with Traditional Arts Collective and guests both local and visiting, also the ever popular Healing and Wellbeing Center with Massage, Yoga, Reiki and Meditation. There will also be a short Guided Walk in the Monastic City and hopefully a talk on recent Archeology work in the area.  A few new faces are expected with new displays of unusual or scary art !  The children’s area will bring back the dream-catcher, face-painting and children’s craft-making which is always a big hit.  Food and refreshments available to help you make a day of it, and a picnic of it!  We will be writing with more details as we get them – and we will be looking for help and volunteers with tents and organising in the week before and on the day of Glendalough Festival 2015.  Look forward to getting you to help and seeing you there on the day.  Glendalough Arts Network.
