The Platform Performing Arts Festival

Will be held in DRAIOCHT THEATRE on Saturday 25th November,  from 10.30am – 2pm. Timetable will be available on Tuesday 21st November.

There are three competition categories and it’s a wonderful opportunity for your child to perform in front of an audience.


  • Poetry entries will be taken from children age 4 years and upwards.
  • Singing and dancing will be taken from children age 6 years and upwards .
  • If students of different ages are entering the duo or group sections they must enter the OLDER AGE GROUP e.g Mary Murphy age 11 years and Jill Murphy age 9 years (They must enter a competition for the older age group.  Basically the 11 year old cannot go into a competition for a younger age group.)

The Entry Fee is €10 PER ENTRY.  Fees can be paid at a class or online using IBAN IE08AIBK93251521395266.  Please put your ‘CHILD’S NAME’ on the entry.
