This autumn, Siamsa Tíre hosts a major new art exhibition for children, and those of us still young at heart. It re-tells the story of Halloween for a new generation, while showcasing the breadth of talent in contemporary Irish illustration.

Two siblings get lost in the woods.  There they meet a mysterious traveller and embark on an adventure that sees them encountering a cheeky púca, some lost souls, and a choir of banshees…

This is a story told by children’s writer Olivia Hope, who has delved deep into Celtic folklore to create a tale of the myths, legends, traditions, and beliefs associated with Samhain, the Irish festival of Halloween.

That story, A Way Home/Slí Abhaile, is now the inspiration for a major art exhibition for children.  Olivia has collaborated with 20 illustrators and artists from all over Ireland and beyond who have brought the scenes from her story to life.

Explore the true meaning of this Celtic festival through the magic of this exhibition.
