Magic on the Lake – Culture Night

September 20, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

‘I will arise and go now and go to Inisfree…’

After waterfalls and castles The Rabbits Riot are bringing their audience across the water for Culture Night 2019. Enjoy a night cruise on the Inisfree Rose, departing from Parkes Castle, with poetry and song as you travel towards the lands of the fairies. Watch the Fairies on their Island, in their natural habitat, undisturbed by the modern, human world. See them singing, dancing and casting spells into the night.

Based on the magical myths and legends of ancient Ireland, the award-winning The Rabbits Riot Theatre Company invite you to peep through the porthole into the realm of magic that has inspired Irish writers for centuries, to watch the fairies from the safety of the boat, for fear of being swapped for a changeling, never to return.

Warm clothing is advised as night air on the lake can breezy. Boat leaves at 8pm! All ages are welcome and parents/guardians are responsible for their children. There will be a bar open on the boat. Please note if you book tickets and cannot attend, please let us know by emailing therabbitsriottheatrecompany@gmail.com or by refunding your tickets. Thank you!
