This magical journey connecting to your heart, it will bring you to a new world where we can dance in the sky!
Fidget Feet has been wowing and entertaining audiences all over Ireland and beyond since 1998 while developing a healthy infrastructure for the aerial arts in Ireland. FF has performed many time in Riverbank and we are thrilled to bring our outdoor work to the area for the first time.
We suggest bringing a picnic blanket and a picnic, with some picnic chairs. There will be a coffee and tea trailer and café on site and use of toilets. Use the normal car park and then a short walk to the performance. It is an outdoor event so dress for all weather.
Total Fidget Feet experience roughly 50mins. This includes Handful of Dreams show and a traditional Irish music band and Céilí, so be ready to dance!
