During 2012 you can enjoy Spréacha shows throughout the year, starting with ‘Under a Different Light’, travelling to Fingal from Italy in March, and then 'Kindur - The Adventurous Life of Icelandic Sheep', travelling to Fingal from Italy in June.
Spréacha shows are perfect for school groups and families with events programmed in and out of school time. Phone our Box Office now on 01-8852622.
Spréacha is presented by Draíocht in partnership with Fingal County Council.
"It was magical, they were mesmerized – it was the best school tour we were ever on."
"They loved it, one child (hard of hearing) doesn’t communicate very much and he communicated about it at home, this is very unusual for him, he only does this with things that he has really enjoyed."
