Cork Midsummer Festival
Cork Midsummer Festival is bigger and brighter than ever with a kaleidoscope of FREE events for families taking place from 13 - 23 June. The 11-day festival will run an extraordinary variety of activities for the whole family, suitable for all age groups, with music, circus, dance, arts and crafts workshops, high-flying performances and spectacular science. Listings for families wanting to experience something new can be found at www.corkmidsummer.com. A highlight from one of Ireland’s fastest-growing and most exciting multi-disciplinary arts festivals is the free outdoor bicycle-powered performance of Shakespeare’s The Tempest (18 & 19 June) by all-female troupe The HandleBards at Fitzgerald Park.
