The Arts Office, Laois County Council invite people of an older age to join in some of the wonderful events that are happening in Laois for the Bealtaine Festival 2014. Celebrating creativity as we age, an estimated 120,000 people now take part in the Bealtaine festival nationally, making it one of Ireland’s biggest arts festivals. From dance to cinema, painting to theatre, Bealtaine showcases the talents and creativity of both first-time and professional older artists. This year the theme for the festival is ‘And catch the heart off guard’, a phrase from Seamus Heaney’s poem Postscript. You can find out all you need to know about Bealtaine 2014 from the festival website or visit the Laois website to check on local events.
