At the heart of Baboró’s ambition is access to the arts for all children. We work closely with schools so that all children enjoy equal access to the arts during our annual festival and throughout the year.

Resources for Teachers & Schools

Bus Subsidy Information

We recognise the cost and effort schools and teachers incur to bring their students to our festival. Baboró has been supported by local businesses and individuals to help schools with transportation costs. With your booking confirmation you will receive details about how to claim back some of your bus hire costs after the festival.

Please pay your own travel costs in full, then send the completed bus subsidy form plus receipt/proof of payment to: Baboró, 2nd Floor, Augustine Court, Augustine Street, Galway, H91 VXT1.

In order to help us continue this service and due to limited funds, we kindly ask schools to avail of this offer only where they could not otherwise attend. If you are concerned that bus hire costs may be a barrier to your attendance and need to make arrangements in advance of the festival, please contact the Schools Box Office.
