Féile Ceoil na Scoileanna Áth Luain

Féile Ceoil na Scoileanna is a non-competitive children’s music music1festival now in its 56th year. Primary school children from Co. Westmeath, Co. Roscommon and the greater Midlands area showcase their musical, creative and dramatic talents on stage in front of an audience.

The festival takes place annually in the Dean Crowe Theatre, Athlone in the months of March or April. The Festival runs for three to four days with night shows and matinées. There are nine to ten performances per show.

Entertainment includes choirs, singing, instrumental music, school bands, drama, verse speaking, action songs, mime and dance.

The children are prepared in school by their teachers supported by helpers and music specialists. The parents play an active role helping with costumes and props while supporting them at home rehearsing and practising for the big event.

The aims of the Féile are:

  • To promote Irish culture, music song and dance while embracing many other cultures which are now an integral part of our schools.
  • To provide enjoyment through singing, music and dance for the many children who take part and attend and to their parents and friends who support the Féile.
