Baboró Culture Night 2017

Baboró Culture Night in Galway County

Rediscover Stories With Baboró

Friday, 22 September 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Ages: 1 to 12 years and their families

Oughterard Courthouse Bridge Street, Oughterard, Co. Galway


We at Baboró love a good story. They are all around us, stories told by three year olds, stories told by granny and granddad, stories told with pictures, stories that are true, and stories that are full of imagination....


Join Baboró and local artist Phillida Eves for an afternoon of creative storytelling and exploration in your community. Families are welcome to come and read together and tell each other stories using some unusual visual art and craft materials in a supported, playful way. This will be a beautiful opportunity to take some all-important time out of your busy week and sit down with your child, grandchild, niece or nephew and have some fun.

Phillida is experienced in working with children with additional needs and welcomes all families to this inclusive event.
