Address: Galway 

Baboró International Arts Festival for Children is delighted to announce full programme details for the 24th annual festival, taking place Monday 5th - Sunday 18th October in arts spaces, public places, on the airwaves, and in our imaginations. Galway-based Baboró is Ireland’s flagship international arts festival devoted exclusively to young audiences, their families and schools, and this year’s innovative programme will bring live performances, visual art installations and interactive digital experiences to children, their friends and families over an extended two week period. Festival highlights include live performances of Birdboy by United Fall, Paul Noonan’s The Electric Kazoo, The Dig by Paul Curley and Bewley’s Café Theatre’s Wilde Garden Adventures. An emphasis has been placed on live performances for children with additional needs with two of the country’s most celebrated artists working in this area, Phillida Eves and Anna Newell, adapting shows to safely meet this important audience in outdoor spaces.
