Spooktacular line-up for Ardagh Fright Fest

Ardagh Fright Fest returns for the third year with the support of Longford Arts Office. This year promises to be the best ever with a full line-up of events from 28th October to 4th November. We have something for every one with three days of fantastic literature events kicking off the week.

This year we are joined by E.R. Murray, Ruth Frances Long, Caroline Busher and Jane Gilheaney Barry for a number of events for children, teens and adults. Favourites such as Ardagh School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Samhain Walk and Spooky Art Camp return and we also will have visits from Ardagh Tree Fairies for some Scary Fairy Fun. The final event is The Night of the Living Fed Banquet with Cook n Dine Longford on Saturday 4th November.
There's something for everyone as you can see in the at a glance guide below. Most events have limited spaces so book your tickets now.

Maths Week coming soon

Don't forget to book your school groups in for Maths Week from Monday 16th to Friday 20th October. We still have some availability, €4 per person for groups of more than ten, €5 per person for groups of ten or less. Two sessions daily from 10.30am to 12.00pm and 12.30pm to 2.00pm.

 Will you be able to find some of these shapes around the building? We will also be seeing what shapes we find outside before having some fun creating patterns with tessellating shapes with printing and paper mosaics. This curriculum-linked workshop can be adapted to suit all ages.

If you can't make it along, why not try some tessellations for yourself with this tessellation creator and if you figure out what the hammer does, let us know!
