A Winter Wish - Ceol Connected

Thu 29 - Fri 30 Nov 2018 10.15AM & 12.15PM Draíocht Studio // €5 Per Child (Accompanying SNA Free) / Age 3+ / Dur 45 mins


Every winter in Whistleberry Forest, a little robin comes to visit and grants the creatures of the forest their very own wish - they can wish for whatever they want! As Ornaith the owl, Sorley the snail and Faoiláin the frog sing the magic words, the forest is transformed before their eyes into an enchanting wintry wonderland.
From dripping icicles to gentle snowfall, the delight of skating on an icy river or flying high on a moonlit night, discover the mysteries of Whistleberry Forest in a mesmerising traditional music performance made especially for children with sensory and complex needs.

With musicians Thomas Johnston and Stephen Markham and visual artist Orla Kelly, Ceol Connected’s 'A Winter Wish' is a highly interactive, multisensory and immersive musical adventure that has been specifically developed to engage children with special educational needs. From the makers of 'A Wonderful Tune' and 'The Quiet Tree'.

This show is limited to 8 children & their SNA's per performance and is ideally suited to special needs creches & preschools. All enquiries to Sarah Beirne or phone Box Office on 01-8852622.
Developed with the kind support of Draíocht.
