    Sunday, 7 - 8am


    There’s a really exciting festival happening in Limerick all next week, Limerick’s first ever theatre festival for children. It’s called Bualadh Bos and there's a wide variety of theatrical and literary events happening, including performances, interviews and workshops, between now and Friday October 31st - Hallowe'en! 

    The line-up includes talks with authors of some much-loved children's books including Judi Curtin (the Alice and Megan series and the Eva series) and Andy Stanton (author of the Mr Gum series). Let your imagination run wild with a performance of Homer’s The Odyssey, where audiences not only interact with characters from Ancient Greece, but play some of roles themselves. For all the details you can visit the website for the Lime Tree Theatre

    We've got two family passes to give away for an event of your choice, subject to availability. This lovely prize includes lunch, so all the makings of a great day out! To enter, simply email with the answer to this question:

    Name the series of children’s book by Irish author Eoin Colfer - Artemis _______

    Entries must be received by Friday October 24th and we’ll announce the winner here next week. Good luck!

    We'll hear a slightly unusual version of Peter and the Wolf today, read by Gavin Friday. We'll also include music written for some magical creatures, including the fairy-servant Puck from Mendelssohn’s music to A Midsummer Night's Dream. 

    Sunday October 26th
    Classical Kids gets a little creepy this Sunday, with lots of spooky tunes especially for Halloween! We’ll visit the terrifying Mountain King with music by Grieg, and hear the tale of the Sorcerer’s Apprentice with enchanting music by Paul Dukas. We’ll also take a chilling flight through the skies with Wagner’s Ride of Valkyries and pay a visit to Jack Skellington in the town of Halloween. So listen in – if you dare...
