The Linenhall presents The Far Field sessions for children ages 3+ and their families

The Linenhall Arts Centre is teaming up with Ceol Connected and seventeen partner venues to present The Far Field Sessions, an exciting series of 12 online music and puppetry sessions for children aged 3yrs+ and their families.

Over the months of May/June, join Ceol Connected's Thomas Johnston (musician), Emma Fisher (puppeteer), and Thomas Baker (puppeteer) as they present a series of music and puppetry sessions for children ages 3+ and their families based on The Far Field show.  Ceol Connected is an impassioned company that creates joyful work for young audiences that is of the highest quality and that draws inspiration and intrigue from the world of traditional arts.

The Far Field sessions will draw on the show's themes of fairies, folklore, and farming!  The Far Field tells the story of Lonán the farmer who one day discovers a magical whistle hidden in a hare’s nest. Suspecting that it belongs to the fairy folk who live at the edge of his farm, Lonán decides that the whistle should be returned to its rightful owners.
