For the 12th year running, DCU joins this national celebration of arts, culture and creativity with a family focused programme on St Patrick's campus.

Expect a fun-packed, thrill-filled circus cabaret  with aerial and circus performance, art workshops and music. To celebrate the Children’s Books Ireland Collection at DCU library,  there is a specially curated exhibition and drop-in book clinics for young readers. As always, we welcome the public to join the selection of guided tours on offer, to visit Seomra Caidrimh for 'ceol, comhrá agus comhluadar' and to enjoy the light installation along the lime tree walkway.
