Deflating – in more ways than one

It’s back to earth with a bang today after leaving my comfortable bubble of the theatre world. I was part of Sligo Acts at the Hawk’s Well Theatre. Basically around 40 members of the public signed up to be part of a stage show.

Things I like this week

There’s been a lot of doom and gloom around lately, I know I’m one of the culprits! So I thought I’d share some of the things I’ve liked this week – and don’t worry cake and chips don’t make an appearance because you all know how I feel about them!

Sligo Acts

I went along to the Hawk’s Well Theatre yesterday for the introduction to Sligo Acts. This is a great new project by the theatre to give members of a public a chance to appear on stage. It’s open to all so there were people who had acting experience and people who were beginners.

Bealtaine Festival

The Bealtaine Festival takes place for the month of May, it’s  Ireland’s national celebration of the arts and creativity as we age. So far for the festival I’ve taken photos, I’ve attended acting workshops and a lot more…..

Halloween Happenings in Sligo

Halloween, which actually originated in Ireland (more about that later in another blog), also coincides with the mid-term break here in Ireland so I’ve decided to blog about some things of interest happening in Sligo.
