It’s official! Summer is just around the corner. At Garter Lane that means lots & lots happening, so why not dive headlong into a spectacular array of events and cultural activities for the very young and the not so very young. Browse through our packed Bealtaine Programme(PDF) and select something that peaks your interest, craft yourself a shopping bag! Attend one of 4 free screenings in May! Join us for the best in local and touring theatre, from new Waterford theatre company SuirLook and the world of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, to the “explosively comic” PUMPGIRL (Decadent Theatre Co.). The highly successful OffSketch is back this year as part of National Drawing Day and the festival of Architechture and participating is a blast as we bring you on a sketching tour of the city. With plenty of thought provoking cinematic offerings in store like The lonely battle of Thomas Reid “One mans struggle to hold on to his way of life and land” and two beautiful exhibitions: Berlin Opticians Wish Me a Wonder (Main Gallery) & Irish Illustrators Welcome To The Flock (front of House), the months of May and beyond look set to warm up very nicely indeed.
