A Fairies’ Tale

A Fairies’ Tail is a promenade theatrical circus performance piece that happening in any park, garden, woods or urban location. The audience follows the show as it moves about the woods of Fairy Land. Full of Fidget Feet’s trademark playfulness, come and watch Ireland’s leading aerial circus company as they swing from trees high above the audience. This is a day out for the entire family.

“A Fairies’ Tail was an outstanding success! It continues in our tradition of presenting high quality Irish theatre at the Festival.”
