We’re delighted to be involved in this year’s Cork Midsummer Festival!

Here’s the three Midsummer events on here at St. Peter’s Cork:
Tiny Dancer: A DJ Set for Kids
Saturday, June 16th, 11am – 12pm
-tickets: *this event is now sold out*
Let’s dance! It’s time for the kids to throw some shapes and bust out their best moves as DJ Dónal Dineen hits the decks for a special musical rollercoaster ride. Expect dance turns from every era and every corner of the globe. So if you’re ready to get into the groove, lace up your dancing shoes and grab those glowsticks. Kids just wanna have fun!
Suitable for 0-8 year olds.
A City in Flames: Linda Buckley
Monday, June 18th, 19.30 – 20.30
A live performance of poetry by Doireann Ní Ghríofa with sonic landscape by internationally-acclaimed composer Linda Buckley, in which each movement ignites a series of burnings, with wild, immersive sounds, and blazing poems merging in crackling, fizzing fires. Each poem sets the city on fire, and each fire burns in a different era, revealing a new layer to the development of the character of Cork and its people.
