The Armagh Rhymers, one of Ireland’s leading theatre ensembles, will get up to mumming, music and mischief at Ballycastle Seafront and the Witch’s Hat at The Crescent in Portstewart

From story-telling to street theatre, and lantern making to Lego animation, there’s lots going on for all the family to enjoy.

The Armagh Rhymers, one of Ireland’s leading theatre ensembles, get up to mumming, music and mischief on Thursday, October 28 at Ballycastle Seafront from 12pm-1.30pm before they move to the Witch’s Hat at The Crescent in Portstewart from 3pm-4.30pm.

Dressed in traditional Celtic costumes, follow the Rhymers as they get up to all sorts of trickery as they explore the ancient festival of Samhain with tales of folklore, faeries and song. Children can also make their own magic wands, Samhain masks and autumn head wreaths with professional artists whilst enjoying the Rhymers performance. No booking necessary and both events are free!

The same fantastic pop-up art workshops are also happening on Friday 29th October at the Diamond Centre in Coleraine from 11am-12.30pm and Ballymoney Town Hall from 2pm-3.30pm.

Meanwhile at Roe Valley Arts & Cultural Centre, children can make their own Halloween lanterns in workshops at 12 noon, 1.30pm and 3pm or their own amazing mythology masks on Friday, October 29 from 11am-1pm, in time for trick or treating at the weekend. As well as this, the Can Do Academy present two Halloween Lego animations on Saturday, October 30 at 10am and 1pm.
