Welcome to the first year of Tradoodle, Monaghan’s Traditional Arts Festival for Children and Young Audiences.

Tradoodle will bring a wide range of events to school and family audiences between 24th-29th October. 

Our exciting programme features a mix of magical musical feasts, sean-nós dancing for early years, live band extravaganzas, online tin-whistle lessons for schools and families, art exhibitions, special animation screenings, and lots more.  You’ll even have a chance to fine-tune your shadow puppet skills and join our spooky Halloween session! 

We hope that you’ll get to join us, sing, dance, laugh, be curious and wide-eyed, explore, learn some new things, and see what else Tradoodle has to offer!

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Thomas Johnston
Artistic Director
