Join us for our 5th Toddler Take Over Adventure in May!


A host of wonderful artists and art forms awaits you to see, hear and experience new adventures during our Toddler Take Over Adventure 2019! Draíocht’s Toddler Take Over, now in its 5th Year, celebrates the limitless imagination of the very young child and the magic that happens when it is combined with the world of artists and the arts. With a combination of book-in and free drop-in events, and the very special addition of a Sensory Toddler Day, children are invited to explore sounds and movement and think about really important questions:
Will the Sad Mermaid get to the party?
Can I shake to make music?
Can a tent dance?
Draíocht transforms into a big space for adventure through story, visual arts, music, circus and dance for the very young. Scribble and draw in our Gallery Spaces, dance, move and take part in a party under the sea, dancers will dance and musicians will play, scribble, build, invent. Children are invited to bring their insatiable curiosity and their adults to explore, discover new art forms, create, play, dance, draw, sing and nurture creative potential, while having fun too.
