About this event

Wake up with us!

A festival of light and laughter for all the family starring contortionists, tumblers, hula hoop artists, jugglers, flow dancers, music and spoken word poetry from across the world.

Equinox is when the island falls quiet. Visitors leave and the sun begins to set early. It’s the birth of another season, when we gather indoors to celebrate what the summer has brought and the winter may bring. We find warmth by the fire. Come join us to celebrate this special time of year and herald in the autumn.

Featuring Achill Island’s own Circus250 house band with Diarmuid Gielty, John Butler, Lisa Fukuda and Alan Hughes.

Staged in the historic atmospheric dining room at the Valley House, Achill Island.

Hot drinks available throughout.

This event is supported by Regional Festivals funding.
