ROLL UP, ROLL UP!!!
ROOLABOOLA IS HERE!
Shows, workshops, a fireworks spectacular on Lough Lannagh and much more:
ROOLABOOLA 2008, the Linenhall Arts Centre’s fun-packed 11th annual arts fest for young people comes to its brilliant climax with a BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND (25th-27th October) of fun and frolics for young ones and their families. It’s brilliant!
The excitement is red hot at the Linenhall, the RoolaBoola Booking Office is working overtime, but there’s still tickets left for plenty of shows for all ages over the Bank Holiday weekend, including: Shona Reppe’s magical puppetry in "Olga Volt", a funny and totally engaging show about The Electric Fairy and her act that goes horribly wrong, for ages 7 years and up (Saturday 25th October at 12.00pm & 3.00pm); and Cahoots NI’s fantastical circus family experience, "The Flea Pit", taking place in a colourful caravan on Castlebar’s Market Square (Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th October, various times, 6 years+). And plenty more besides!
If you’re between 3 and 12, and you want to try your hand at anything from singing and rhyming through music and drama to 2-D and 3-D visual arts making, the Linenhall is the place to be over the Bank Holiday Weekend. Just be sure and book in advance! Plus there’s a whole lot of free drop-in workshops for those ‘in-between’ moments to keep the fun going.

LOADS OF FREE STUFF!
As well as the free drop-in events there’s much more besides. Tom Meskell and the HSE Rural Training Centre presents the strange and mysterious world of wonder "The Ant Farm" on Friday 24th October at 7.30pm (a free event!), plus there is your very own, "My RoolaBoola" art exhibition in the Linenhall café from 20th October.

Last but not least, there is the free "Lough Lannagh Lights" lakeside firework finale on Bank Holiday Monday (27th October at 8pm), an unforgettable end to another brilliant RoolaBoola experience: a magical, fun-filled brew for the kids and the rest of the family too!
