Laois Bealtaine Festival Programme Launch 2014

Published: 9th April 2014

The Arts Office, Laois County Council in association with Laois Credit Union have launched a colourful programme of events for the Laois Bealtaine Festival 2014 recently at Portlaoise Credit Union.

Bealtaine is the national arts festival celebrating creativity in older age. An estimated 120,000 people take part in the Bealtaine festival nationally, making it one of Ireland’s biggest arts festivals. From dance to cinema, painting to theatre, the Laois Bealtaine Festival showcases the talents and creativity of both first-time and professional older artists. This year the theme for the festival is 'And catch the heart off guard', a phrase from Seamus Heaney's poem Postscript. You can find out all you need to know about Bealtaine 2014 from the festival website www.bealtaine.com or visit the Laois website www.laois.ie to check on local events or pick up the Laois programme from Laois Credit Unions or Laois Libraries.
