St. Patrick is coming to visit St. Seachnall – has he been behaving himself? Come and find out for what promises to be this year’s festival highlight.

This spectacular street theatre event kicks off at 6.30pm on Saturday 24th September on Main Street. With characters never before seen in Dunshaughlin – some tiny, some pretty huge – this performance is sure to be a unique experience. All costumes and characters have been made by Dunshaughlin residents under the expert design and direction of Brian Walsh, Head of Dunshaughlin Harvest Festival Arts Team and coordinator of a portfolio preparation course at Ballyfermot College of Further Education and Ed Rourke from Bui Bolg. Bui Bolg has been working in street arts for 22 years and are specialists in Puppet and Costume making for stage, street, and TV. They have led puppet making workshops with professional and community groups all over the world from schools to colleges to masterclasses with industry professionals. Their most recent projects include “The Dig in Diner” on RTE Junior, Mr Tayto for Largo Foods and the City of Brest ” LE MARCHÉ DE NOËL DE BREST” with Le Fourneau Creation Centre in France. This project was part funded by Meath County Council.
