Spréacha 2017

We open our Spréacha International Programme 2017, with a wonderful show called 'The Curious Scrapbook of Josephine Bean'.

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."

The Curious Scrapbook of Josephine Bean

Shona Reppe / Presented as part of Spreacha – Fingal’s International Arts Programme for Children at Draiocht

Fri 24 - Sun 26 Mar 2017 Draíocht Studio // €7 adults / €5 children / 2 teachers free per class of 20+

Everything is flat, pressed, squished.
A dusty, musty smell mixes with the scent of old lavender and a string lifts a flap to reveal a hidden door. Slowly, page-by-page, the scrapbook becomes the window into a secret world and a curious life unfolds before us.
