Delve into culture and creativity

Wednesday, 13th June, 2018 4:11pm

Children and teenagers will have their pick of activities when Cork city joins in on a one-day nationwide youth festival this month. 

Aimed at involving kids up to 18 in culture and creativity, Cruinniú na nÓg is organised by Creative Ireland, the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht; and locally by Cork City Council.

The day will abound in family-friendly performances, art displays, readings and more. Rebel Streets, a street art festival featuring outsized art works, demonstrations, talks, and workshops, will spread out across the Grand Parade, Bishop Lucey Park, and the City Library.

At the Old Cork Waterworks Experience in Sunday’s Well, a Science Picnic will engage young visitors in science experiments, puzzle solving, Bubble Magic Shows, and other activities.

Wandering through the city centre, children and their families can learn about Celtic myths and legends with storytelling sessions at St Peter’s on North Main Street, participate in family-friendly tours of the Crawford Art Gallery, or hear Cork authors read their prose and poetry about St. John’s Eve aloud at Elizabeth Fort.

Singing and dancing are on the menu too, with workshops for the family in City Hall run by SummerSING! and St John’s Eve community celebrations in various locations including Knocknaheeny, Mayfield, Skehard Road, The Glen and Togher.
