Halloween / Samhain events in The Glens Centre

The Glens Centre in Manorhamilton is inviting everyone to come along and celebrate Halloween or Samhain, the Celtic festival that marked the end of harvest in ancient Ireland, during a spectacular two-day event this weekend.
This Sunday afternoon, October 30, the Glens Centre will be hosting a series of scary workshops from 2pm to 5pm. There will be spooky arts and crafts for children. You can create a soundtrack to Halloween with sound artist John Daly and there is even (supervised) pumpkin carving for the adults.


On this Monday afternoon and evening, October 31 from 4pm to 7pm, come trick or treating and the Glens Centre will provide you with entertainment. The Glens Centre is proud to announce that its First Annual Children’s Scary Film Festival will take place on this special occasion with short films made by children in the Brouhaha Drama Club and St. Clare’s Primary School.
The show will also have performances and readings by the Manorhamilton Youth Theatre, Brouhaha Drama Club and others. Come in fancy dress and you might even get a terrifying prize.
