Fairytale Festival at Woodstock Gardens

Beat 102-103's Fairytale Festival returns to Woodstock Gardens Inistioge this July.

The annual one-day event takes place on Sunday, July 21, between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. Set in the beautiful surrounds of Woodstock Gardens, which lie on the edge of Inistioge, The Fairytale Festival is the brainchild of Beat's Creative Department, who have been working feverishly over the winter period to produce an enjoyable, safe and magical space for children to discover (and adults to rediscover) the magic of traditional fairytales. Now in its fourth year, the 100 per cent, screen-free event is set to feature a fairy trail, bouncy castles, storytelling, a plethora of outdoor games, a reptile zoo and mini farm, the return of an expanded capacity interactive story train, and much more.

As always, children will have the opportunity to meet some of their favourite fairytale characters. There will be a diverse array of food stalls spread across the glorious gardens. Mayor of Kilkenny, Peter `Chap' Cleere said: `From the characters to the performances and the interactive workshops - I'm really looking forward to this year's festival.'

He was also keen to stress the importance of the festival's new greening initiatives, which will be developed with Kilkenny County Council. `We're really pushing good environmental practise this year.'
