Traditionally, Irish céilís provided an opportunity for families and friends to unwind, share time together and celebrate.
So, how better can the Liverpool Irish Festival help families to wrap up #LIF2019, ahead of the working week, but to provide you with a brilliant céilí? This is the perfect time to (re)connect with loved ones, your (or another) culture and plan your trip to Ireland. Bring family, friends and your dancing feet to join the fun, learn some Irish céilí dances and witness live music and dance. No previous experience is necessary as full instructions will be given by an exceptional caller.
Not only will there be fun with music and dance, but The Armagh Rhymers will be in attendance, bringing with them folk stories, mumming and children’s books, galore. A truly spectacular outfit, they are replete with giant woven head pieces, costumes and drama, as presented by the true rhyming traditions of Ireland. For more details on their work visit armaghrhymers.com
Irish stew and other lunch offers will available from the Liverpool Irish Centre’s shop, along with a range of Irish produce sold all year ‘round. Do stop and take a look.
The Family Céilí forms part of our wider Family Days programme, including the Family Day at the Museum of Liverpool on Sat 26 Oct (see listing). It is organised by Liverpool Irish Festival in partnership with the Liverpool Irish Centre.
