Ardagh Fright Fest 2015

Ardagh Fright Fest 2015 was a resounding success! Thank you to Fergus Kennedy, Longford arts Office for his vision and support. The photography exhibition had over 600 viewers (thanks go to Shelley Corcoran and the students from around the county for all their hard work). We got very creative during our Frightful Art workshop and Spooky Art Day and the sun shone brightly for our Samhain morning walk with Brendan Farrell. Lots of families enjoyed Ardagh School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and we even presented OWLs certs to some students returning for the fifth year. The highlights for many attendees though were the Gothic writing workshops with writers ER Murray and Joe Murphy and we want to say once more how grateful we were to have them attend.

Here's some feedback we received:
"Just so let you know that I thought the workshop (with E.R. Murray) was brilliant and I really enjoyed it. I got  “The Book of Learning” straight away yesterday"
"Just wanted to say thank-you for making this workshop (with Joe Murphy) possible. It was one of the most enjoyable and informative I’ve ever attended. Ann, thanks to you and Annette for hosting the workshop – I’d add ‘comfortable and ‘hospitable’’ to the above description."

We had so much going on for the first ever Ardagh Fright Fest, watch out for more in 2016. You will find full details here later in the year, but for now see what you missed:
