Friday 7th April at 2pm

The Quiet Tree is an intimate traditional music performance specifically designed for young children (aged 3-6) and their families.* The creatures of Whistleberry Forest have discovered a little oak tree growing deep in the woods. However, there are no birds singing, no leaves rustling, and no animals scurrying around its trunk. This delightful music, storytelling, and puppetry performance takes children and accompanying adults on an adventure through the forest where they will explore musical instruments, sing, dance, and help Ornaith the owl, Sorley the snail, and Faolán the frog bring the little oak tree to life through music.

*Participating adult(s) must accompany children.

The Quiet Tree is brought to you by musician Thomas Johnston, Ceol Connected and Common Ground with the generous support of Richmond Barracks.

Tickets €7 per family (1 Adult x 2 children aged 3-6 years) available from:
