Feile Grianan Ailigh
Inishowen Carnival Group is looking for teenage and adult performers to help us put on a performance for Feile Grianan Ailigh which takes place on Sunday 20th May 2012 at Grianan Fort, Burt, Inishowen. The Feile is described as an ancient cultural event and will include a variety of traditional music performances, living history and craft exhibits including stoneage brewery, medieval forge, basket making and many more.
The carnival group have been asked to create a short performance inspired by the many ancient rituals and ceremonies which may have taken place at the site during its long and colourful history. Performance workshops are already underway with children from St Aengus National school, Bridgend and Groarty Integrated school Derry who will also be taking part on the day of the event.
Rehearsals for teenage and adult performers will take place at the fort on Saturday 12th and Saturday 19th May from 1pm and everyone is welcome to take part with roles as varied as flag wavers, drummers and druids. No previous experience is necessary.
If anyone wants to get involved they should contact Kevin O’Neill at Inishowen Carnival Group by emailing [email protected] or phone 0749373375.
