The Lasta festival kicks off this Thursday evening with a special launch concert from Soda Blonde.

Over the ten days of the festival we have a huge variety of events to enjoy online from Olivier award winning dramas to puppet workshops! You can download the programme here or check out our events page for all our Lasta shows and workshops.

An Grianán Theatre is delighted to be one of the participating venues presenting Lasta: a national arts programme for young people by young people. Lasta is presented by the NASC Network as part of Brightening Air | Coiscéim Coiligh, a nationwide, ten-day season of arts experiences brought to you by the Arts Council.

In a new innovative approach to programming, twenty-one young curators were engaged by the Nasc venues to programme a festival of work for children and young people from 11th to 20th June 2021, delivering for the first time, a national arts programme curated entirely by young people.

An Grianán’s young curators Fergal Lonergan and Ailis Cross Gorman have put together a great selection of events to appeal to all ages.

The NASC Network Venues are Backstage Theatre (Longford),  Dunamaise Arts Centre (Portlaoise), glór (Ennis),  An Grianán (Letterkenny),  Lime Tree Theatre (Limerick), Pavilion Theatre (Dún Laoghaire),  Siamsa Tíre (Tralee) and Town Hall Theatre (Galway)

Lasta is based on an original project conceived and delivered by Backstage Theatre, Longford in 2020.
