Tallaght, Saturday 2nd March - Sunday 3rd March 2019

Enjoy colourful and diverse performances and workshops for all ages in over 20 different languages. This year's festival will take place in Tallaght. As the largest of Dublin's suburbs, Tallaght is the home of hundreds of languages and cultures, and is a busy artistic hub. The Festival will take place in Rua Red, the Civic Theatre and the County Library. These three venues will liven up for two days of mesmerising performances, hands-on workshops and a full immersion in a world of languages.

Highlights include Fanzini' circus' performance Roots, and the world premiere of a composition from Irish musician Séan MacErlaine to accompany an interactive reading and illustration of Eoin Colfer's graphic novel, Illegal, and a lively concert by award winning ensemble Yurodny, who will perform contemporary interpretations of traditional music from around the world.
