Storyteller Clare Muireann Murphy will be welcoming you to the event with a storytelling performance that will guide humans of all ages into the magical realm of Irish folklore.
After the feature we’ll also be playing a programme of animated Irish folk songs from the fantastic animators at Cartoon Saloon for you to listen to over a drink at the bar if you wish to hang around.
