It’s that time of year when we welcome summer and Bealtaine, celebrating creativity throughout our lives. At national level, the Bealtaine Festival will adopt the theme of hospitality, welcome and generosity bringing people together to share diverse arts and cultural experiences throughout Ireland. Throughout May and all over Tipperary, we’re delighted, once again, to play our part with programmes running all over the county in which you are welcome to participate and enjoy. The Tipperary Bealtaine Festival is organised by The Arts Office in partnership with Tipperary Libraries and 91 events are planned to take place in Day Care Centres, Libraries, Arts Centres and community halls across the county. Once again, we’ll have a busy month of performances, ﬁlm screenings, community projects and commissions. Please follow this link to see the full programme and you will ﬁnd that, as usual , most events are free or subsidised and we invite you to join in, get involved or take part this May.
