Grasshoppers Festival

Grasshoppers International Early Years Festival is a program of events for children aged 0-6 and their adult carers. Practicing early years artists from abroad will also be invited. Grasshoppers Festival presents a programme of fabulous arts experiences for audiences aged 0-6 in Balbriggan in June.

Artists from Ireland , Chile, Lithuania, Belgium and Croatia will present a whole array of performances and workshops for all, inside EY settings and open to the public at Millfield SC, where the children may learn about active listening and being an audience, participating and having their voices heard, and personal exploration of artistic media through visual arts and movement experiences.

The art exhibition with a floral theme by children from 21 settings in Balbriggan will be on display in Millfied Shopping Centre for the whole community to view.

There will also be a series of 6 advocacy workshops in early years settings and a family event at the grasshoppers tent at the Lusk Community Festival.
