Return of Morrígna

As the veil to the Otherworld thins in approach of Samhain these Ancient Irish Goddesses have been roused from their slumber, by that VERY bright moon!

The Tuathan De Dannan were driven underground many moons ago and have come back to wreak revenge on those Milesians who tricked them and sent them underground. They’ll show them…. they’re gonna …..excuse me WHAT YEAR IS IT? 2019? OH! Uh – oh … don’t let that Portal …close. The Portal is closed. Great.

These three clowns…ahem…goddesses must find a way back to the Otherworld but before they do, they want to know what on earth has been happening, since they last walked it.

A highly interactive, trio of energetic professionally trained physical performers present this family show with audience interaction and slapstick comedy. This will be an all singing; all dancing fusion of Ancient Ireland meets Derry Halloween 2019.

Suitable for All Ages

Perrin & Victor Spooktacular

Have you ever wondered what might happen if an eyeball decided to take a trip to town all by itself on Halloween night?
Have you ever heard of trousers that walk, or bats that rap?

Perrin the Storyteller dusts off her finest witch’s hat to beguile you with spine-tingling tales from her travels through time and space during this, the spookiest time of the year.

But there’s mischief afoot! Victor the Vegetarian Vampire calls, interrupting Perrin’s tales.
Tricks for turnips? Sounds good! Watch as he performs feats of spellbinding magic, each one more mindboggling than the last.

Suitable for All Ages

Admission £2
