Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand…WB Yeats ‘The Stolen Child’ (1888)
Would you like to explore the natural beauty of WB Yeats’ home at Thoor Ballylee in County Galway? Hear his folk and fairy tales, make magic wands and fairy doors? Come and share his love for nature and the legends of the past?
Then join us for our Wild Child celebration this Heritage Week on Wednesday 18 August!.
The event is designed to connect children to the wild wonder of the place, and ignite the magic of the realm that Yeats so loved. There are fairy tales and fables from Yeats as well as poetry and song. We are also preparing a fairy walk with fairy volunteers imparting exciting titbits of woodland lore to children and adults.
This is a free event, but due to Covid 19 restrictions registration for workshops is necessary.
Workshops will be held at the following times:
