Athlone Castle is hosting a free show for families later this month

Athlone Castle Visitor Center will host ‘My Delicious Hat’, a unique free event created by Westmeath performance artist and storyteller, Paul Timoney, on Saturday 22 October.

“My Delicious Hat” is a rather peculiar version of the story of how Cú Chulainn got his name. This brilliantly entertaining show combines surreal, silly, funny and rather interactive poems with activities that kids will really enjoy.

Children are encouraged to join the “maestro-general-acting-the-messer” and prepare to be captivated by Paul’s storytelling!

Paul Timoney is one of the most unique voices in spoken word, an award-winning Irish poet and performer, who has worked as a teacher and creative activity facilitator for many years.

This event will take place at Athlone Castle on Saturday October 22 at 11:30am. This show is suitable for children from 7 to 12 years old. Advance booking is essential via 090 6442130 or [email protected] as places will be limited. Children must be accompanied by an adult, parent. This free event does not include entry to the Athlone Castle Visitor Center.
