Athlone Castle will host a special Halloween event, 'Rattling Bones and Tombstones - Storytelling and Puppetry' this Saturday, October 27.
Children can enjoy Halloween fun with Storygate in the Castle, with four story and puppet sessions taking place at 12pm, 2pm, 3.30pm and 5pm. The first and third sessions (12pm and 3.30pm ) will be suitable for children from 4–7 years in age, with the second and last sessions (2pm and 5pm ) for eight years and older.
‘Little monsters’ will be entertained over 45 minutes with slightly spooky, family friendly stories of graveyards, pranks and silly ghosts by storytellers Michael and Simone from StoryGate, with special guest appearances from Vinny the handsome Vulture!
Athlone Castle encourages all children to get in the mood for Halloween by wearing their costumes to the sessions. Admission to the event for children aged 4-15 years will cost €5, with a €3 cost for accompanying adults. Family tickets cost €12 (2 adults with 2 children ) and €22 (2 adults with 3/4 children ).
Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Goodie bags are included in the price. Places are limited and booking in advance is essential to avoid disappointment. Places for the sessions can be booked by phoning Athlone Castle on 090 6442130 or emailing [email protected].
