A FA-BOO-LOUS PARTY FOR KIDS AT CHARLEVILLE CASTLE THIS HALLOWEEN!

Monday, October 31st from 3-6pm

Zombie dancing, treats, spooky crafts and more!

To all your little Ghouls and Boys – come and experience Charleville Castle, Tullamore at its spookiest this Halloween at a special kid’s Zombie Dance Party!

For years, Charleville Castle has been investigated by numerous paranormal investigators and psychics from around the world. Charleville Castle appeared on Living TV’s Most Haunted and ABC Family’s Scariest Places On Earth, as well as on Ghost Hunters International.  Many have heard or know about the castle’s resident ghost among many named Harriet, youngest daughter of the third Earl of Charleville, who died tragically in the main staircase of the building at the age of 6 in April 1863. Her presence in the castle has been reported many times by many different people, that she is still haunting the castle and its grand staircases to this day.

Ireland’s Celtic past has been reputed to be where Halloween or ‘All Hallow’s Eve’ first originated over the tradition of Halloween, calling itself the Festival of Samhain, the time when the souls of the departed would return to their former homes and when potentially malevolent spirits were released from the Otherworld and were visible to mankind.   Charleville Castle is also situated in Ireland’s most ancient primordial oak woods, once the haunting grounds of Ireland’s druids.  As if Offaly’s most famously haunted castle isn’t spooky enough – we will continue to celebrate these Celtic traditions by inviting all goblins, monsters and ghosties great and small to come and join us in a spook-tastic Zombie dance party full of witchy activities, performances, treats and delights!

Friday 30 September 2016 at 8pm
Venue: Charleville Castle
Tickets:  €15    honoringmyroots@gmail.com

Originally hailing from Philadelphia and now resident in Barcelona, Violetta brings her unique vocal style to Ireland, accompanied by the acclaimed Catalan jazz pianist, composer and arranger Jaume Vilaseca, along with Dick Them on bass and renowned Irish drummer Kevin Brady. “This concert honours the women who have inspired me all through my career. But more than just historical figures, many of these giants of 20th century music were family friends, names that were familiar to me as a child growing in Philadelphia, the daughter of well-known pianist Paul Curry. My father was a working musician, a session man who never pushed to the front or grabbed the spotlight. A natural talent, he was respected and sought after, as an arranger and accompanist.

Best known for his work with Hines, Hines and Dad, he also shared the stage with many of the greats, such as Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan. I remember answering the phone to both of these great ladies on many occasions when very young, not realising until years later who exactly I had been speaking with.” Violetta Curry ‘Master of the essence of Black music’: La Boite ‘Gifted’: AND “Violetta is soul-oriented, with strains of Stevie Wonder and Dione Warwick in her lithe, improvisatory vocals” Cormac Larkin, Sunday Tribune
