What is Bealtaine?
The month of May belongs to the Bealtaine festival, celebrating creativity in older age!
Thousands of older people now take part in the Bealtaine festival. From dance to cinema, painting to theatre, Bealtaine showcases the talents and creativity of both first-time and professional older artists.
Each year, Age & Opportunity invites local authorities, arts centres, libraries, active retirement groups, care settings, community groups and clubs, associations from every part of the country to run Bealtaine events that celebrate creativity in older age.
Once again, Galway City Council / Galway County Council have produced a Galway City & County Bealtaine Booklet to highlight and create awareness of the many wonderful events taking place throughout Galway.
We hope you enjoy all the wonderful activities taking place in Galway this May.
