Hello boys and girls!
Yes THE Bosco is coming to the Dunamaise Arts Centre in Portlaoise this January and you will be able to go along and relive the magic of your childhood.
Bosco will be the star of a Hansel and Gretal show on January 6, 2018.
Bosco was a hugely popular television show produced by RTE in the 1970's and 1980's.
A shared cultural experience for children in Ireland at the time, it ran for 386 episodes, ending production in 1987. The show, however, was continually repeated before (and later during) The Den daily until 30 September 1996, when it was replaced by The Morbegs before officially ending on 1 May 1998.
Bosco lived in a brightly painted wooden box (hence the name: Irish bosca="box"), only ever wandering far from it to go on excursions to such places as Dublin Zoo or the HB Ice Cream factory.
On 9 May 2011, on The Ray D'Arcy Show on Today FM, Bosco let slip that he is a boy, saying that they kept his gender a secret for 33 years.
