Cultúrlann McAdam Ó Fiaich welcomes the season of Bealtaine: the days are getting longer and they are delighted to launch an exciting range of new events and programmes for the coming months as we move from spring to summer.
This year’s Bealtaine programme got off to a brilliant start with the launch of ‘Béal na Péiste’ for which Professor Fionntán de Brún was awarded the prestigious Gradam Úrscéalaíochta an Oireachtais in 2022.
For young people there will be Na Bopóga, Cumann Óige na bhFál Youth Club, the musical workshops Airneál na nÓg and Cultúrlann drama school, Aisling Óg - not to mention our much-anticipated new wellness and creative writing programme for young people, ‘Focail Fhiáine’ (Wild Words).
It is fitting, at this time of year that they welcome in the fairies as Gráinne Holland and friends spread the magic of nature and the elements which surround us. For others, there will be a mixture of new Irish languages classes, yoga and music sessions. The Jeremiahs will also be in concert, and we look forward to beautiful new exhibitions and much, much more! However this is only a taster of what they have to offer. Be sure to have a look at the full programme of events here.
Róisín McDonough, Chief Executive of The Arts Council of Northern Ireland states:
The Bealtaine programme has lots for everyone to enjoy, whatever your age or interests – new exhibitions, including the first professional show by the Dillon Award winner, Tomas Monteiro; traditional music at its best with The Jeremiahs, one of the most exciting bands to emerge from Ireland in recent years; and Bruiser Theatre’s revival of a that modern-day Belfast classic, Mojo Mickybo, in an outstanding production which picked up ‘Best Ensemble’ at the 2022 Irish Times Theatre Awards.
As principal funder through our Exchequer and National Lottery funds, the Arts Council is proud to support the Cultúrlann as it continues to lift, inspire and entertain everyone through the art
