Kids events programme of the Irish week

Annually we prepare a special programme for the youngest guests of the Irish week: concerts of Irish music for kids, meetings with storytellers, animated films and more!

The main venue for kids programme in 2021 will be the Central House of Journalists:

  • 12:00 – Sand show “Myths and Legends of Mysterious Ireland”. It is a continuation of the series of legends about the Emerald island, drawn with sand and told by a professional actor. This time you will learn about incredible stories which happened to people in the land of elves. Magical images of Irish mythology and culture come to life on a screen with a help of an artist – a master of sand animation. At the same time a storytelling session will be performed. Lively sand images from a magical world of an ancient country will be created by a master of sand animation, a laureate of international competitions Ekaterina Sheffer. Ekaterina will be accompanied by a storyteller Alexey Yermakov, an actor and producer of ‘the Theatre on sand’. His voice, fascinating images from sand and Celtic music will bring young guests to a fabulous atmosphere of the land of green hills. Recommended age 3+
