Learn how to draw a Wolfwalkers Background with Grainne Rose Fordham

One of the many highlights from our Children's Film Festival this year was the schools workshops with our outreach artist Grainne Fordham.

Grainne is back to give you a first look at some amazing tutorial videos that she created especially for us.

This month we're also giving you the chance to meet St Brendan and his friends Amy the Albatros and Christopher Columbus when they join Geraldine Gilhooly for Coffee 'n' Chats.
And recently Nenagh Youth Theatre held an open night to give interested new members a sneak peek of what they get up to.

If you missed it and have a 13-17 year old that's interested in acting you can find out more about the group or sign them up for a Youth Theatre. Check out
