Welcome to the 7 annual Hullabaloo! Offaly’s Children’s Arts Festival. We are delighted to present another packed programme of exciting and creative opportunities for children aged 3 to 12. The festival takes place over the October midterm break in Birr, Edenderry and Clara, but this is a festival for all children across the county and of course, many of the performances are for the whole family and the young at heart! We hope you enjoy the festival and we look forward to seeing you!
