Here we have some of our most recent events and activities.

Supported by the Arts Council and Driocht, Ceol Connected, Little Big Top and Early Childhood Creativity joined creative forces and set to work over the summer of 2019 to create a new sensory theatre work for children with complex needs. The result was a beautiful multisensory experience called Leaf.

Andrew Carson and Órla Kelly ventured to Luxembourg to build a rocket in honour of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, and celebrate with the children during Kannersummer in July.
