Inspired by Patrick Kavanagh’s A Christmas Childhood poem, this is a touching story about a young boy whose life was full of wonder, fantastical adventures with his friends, and a deep connection with nature and the world around him.

However, after growing up moving away from home, he somehow lost his wonder along the way.

Can his childhood book of memories help him to rediscover it?

Can he reconnect with the magic of childhood once again?

Using a combination of live music, puppetry and animation The Land of a Hundred Little Hills is a joyful, moving, and action-packed musical tale.

A unique, authentic gig theatre experience for children ages 6+ that vividly and intimately celebrates the wonder childhood; exploring how the ordinary can become extraordinary in the eyes of a child.

Coproduced by Ceol Connected, the National Concert Hall and Draíocht Arts Centre. Commissioned by the Patrick Kavanagh Centre and Monaghan County Council and funded by the Arts Council.
