Upcoming Events

With A Fresh Heart . . .

Happy New Year! To kick off our storytelling year, we have a very special event lined up for Mid-January:

With A Fresh Heart - Tales Of New Starts And Wild Journeys

We are delighted to be back in Kilcullen on the 16th of January for an evening of storytelling with the Triple Spiral Storytellers. This time we'll take you on wild and winding journeys, leaving the old year well behind. With tales of leaps of faith and bumpy roads we greet the new year together.

Triple Spiral Storytellers
16th of January from 7.30 to 9.30pm
An Tearmann Cafe, Kilcullen (Main Street)

StoryGate's New Programme

We're currently working on our new programme of storytelling and puppetry events and workshops which will be launched in the last weeks of January and send out to schools, libraries and festivals.

We're excited about many new shows and workshops, including this creative writing workshop:

Reaching For The Stars - An Outer Space Writing Workshop

Do you know what Saturn's rings are made off? And what kind of shoes would you need if you wanted to walk on them?
This workshop combines science with fun to spark off your imagination! With amazing facts about our stars and true stories about actual space-walks, storyteller Simone Schuemmelfeder will inspire you to write your own space adventure.

Suitable for age groups 7+

More details coming soon!
