Belltable Easter Creative Arts Camp to Take Place in the Hub

A Belltable Easter creative arts camp is set to take place in the Hub from March 26 to March 30, 2018, taking place between 10 am and 3 pm each day. This programme, developed by playwright Liam McCarthy, is in its first year of running and will feature drama, singing and more, taking inspiration from this year’s theme, ‘The Jungle Book’. The camp will provide two different groups; one for six to nine-year-olds, and another for ten to twelve-year-olds. €100 per child is the cost of enrollment, though this is discounted to €80 for second and third siblings should they also be enrolled.

The theatre-makers and facilitators of the Belltable will be running the camp. This includes Liam McCarthy himself. Liam has facilitated and worked as a drama teacher in theatre schools and centres across Ireland and the world. He is currently the project manager at the Ark, a cultural centre for children in Dublin. Also, his recent work includes facilitator for Dublin Theatre Festival. Liam is also has a talent for playwriting, and has worked as a theatre maker for companies including the Traverse, Edinborough Rough Magic, Druid, Siren Productions, the Samuel Beckett Centre and Octopus Soup Theatre.  He attended Trinity College Dublin and UC Berkely California as a drama student.

All things visual-arts related will be the camp’s main focus. Therefore, participators will take part in workshops for activities such as directing, mime and theatrical creative writing. A performance for family and friends is to take place March 30 at 3 pm to demonstrate the skills the children have learned.

Each child must bring a packed lunch as there will be small and big breaks each day. All children have to wear comfortable runners and clothes. Of course, due to on weather conditions, suncream and rain gear could also be necessary.

The camp is located at Belltable Hub at 69 O’Connell Street, Limerick City. Belltable Hub is located next to Belltable Theatre, up the stoop on the left of the theatre entrance.
