Patrick’s Mysterious adventure
The Children’s Council, Connor are organizing an all-age exhibition and story trail themed around the life of Ireland’s patron saint Patrick. We hope that the event will give visitors the opportunity to reconnect with the life story of Saint Patrick, discover more about him and be inspired by his faith and faithfulness to God.
So why not put the dates in your diary and make time to come and visit the event in St. Anne’s Cathedral. You will be able to take a walk though the different stages of Patrick’s life and discover his adventures first-hand.
Live actors will re-enact the tale from Patrick’s capture by Irish pirates to his return to serve the people of Ireland that he loved so well. You can visit our art and history workshops, interact with our circus performers, join in with Viking battle re-enactments and enjoy live Irish music and dance!
The exhibition can be explored independently or why not wait for one of our timed performances where actors bring the story to life?
