Get creative with an inventive story-making workshop, Treasures from the Bog, with writer Kate Heffernan and illustrator Duffy Mooney-Sheppard, inspired by the interesting things found in Irish bogs. From ancient butter to golden jewellery, what weird or wonderful things can you imagine digging up? Kate and Duffy will guide you in spinning a visual story from found treasure.

Come and enjoy a new theatre show called Peat written by Kate Heffernan and directed by Tim Crouch. Set on the edge of town, in the middle of a bog half way between a school and a housing estate, Ray and Jo have come to dig a hole. Peat is the story of the things they bury and the things they find. With lightness and humour, this new play for children asks big questions about life, death, time and history.

Workshop Session 1 @ 11.30am: ages 5-7
Workshop Session 2 @ 2.15pm: ages 8-12
