Aisling Childrens Arts Festival
Albert Einstein once said that “Creativity is contagious, pass it on!” And that is exactly what the Aisling Children's Arts Festival strives to do.
23rd October to 29th October 2016
Now in its 19th year Aisling continues to be the best fun in Longford for children of all ages. Our aim has always been to enhance children’s creativity and self-esteem through the medium of the arts. Through magical theatre, creative workshops and a host of artistic activities we endeavour to capture the imagination of our young audience. We hope this year's jam packed festival with the theme of “ A Better World” will engage all those who participate in it. We greatly appreciate the support we receive from our sponsors and all those who help make the festival possible, especially our friends at Backstage Theatre and BYT.

The lighting of the Uisneach beacon fire was the signal for igniting fires on many hills across the whole island creating a unique ‘fire eye’ with Uisneach being the pupil. This heralded the coming of summer.
