An immersive adventure that offers a gentle introduction to the world of Irish folklore, traditional music, dance and Gaelic language for the very young.
Using a mixture of original and existing scores, with vocals in English and Gaelic, Tír na nÓg follows the inquisitive Orla as she discovers a small, winged creature in her back garden, which is unlike anything she has ever seen, and follows it through the forest and seas, all the way to Tír na nÓg!
A multi-sensory, interactive experience; expect lots of opportunities to clap along, play and join in, before sailing away back home, all in time for bed! Although influenced by Irish culture, Tír na nÓg is a story that can be enjoyed by all curious children and their grown ups!
There will be an optional stay and play session after the show.
Show Times - 11am & 2pm
Age Guidance: 0 - 3 years

The Hat Factory
The Hat Factory is Luton's leading arts and entertainment venue featuring live music, club nights, theatre, dance, films, children's activities, workshops, classes and gallery exhibitions.
It's a centre of artistic excellence set within a vibrant urban environment. It offers the young and the young at heart the chance to engage with the arts, to be inspired by the UK’s leading arts practitioners, and to develop artistic skills and confidence.
The Hat Factory is a combined arts venue in the centre of Luton. It opened in 2003 and since then has been the area’s main provider of contemporary theatre, dance and music. We work with both emerging and proven producers and artists, through programming, engagement programmes and our Associate Artist scheme. Their music programming is vibrant, offering an eclectic portfolio of high quality artists from the worlds of jazz, blues, folk, world music, indie and hip hop. Complementing their own programming, they welcome local/regional promoters to the venue, broadening their music offer and at the same time supporting young promoters and their businesses. They programme contemporary theatre and dance with a focus on fresh, new and relevant stories from both established and emerging touring companies who are making high quality work in the UK. They’ve programmed companies like Earthfall, Chickenshed, New International Encounter (NIE), Trestle, Menagerie, Eastern Angles, Atma, State of Emergency, 30 Bird, Tavaziva, Analogue and Jean Abreu Dance to name but a few.
The Hat Factory has flexible spaces of various sizes to suit every need. See Venue Hire for more information.
