The Main Day of the Girl activities begin at 12pm to 4pm Sunday 11th October, with :

  • Storytelling, which featured stories where girls are the heroes!
  • Move Your Body, Use Your Voice, featuring dance, song, spoken word, and a big old family boogie!
  • A giant trad session led by the awesome Cairenn Keegan and Brid Dunne!
  • And lots more…..
