Bealtaine is a month long festival in May featuring performances, exhibitions, discussions, workshops and readings by artists working in different art forms all over Ireland. The festival is run by Age & Opportunity, the national organisation working to improve the quality of life of people aged 50 to 100+. For the first time since 2019, the majority of Bealtaine 2022 will be held in-person, with many events also taking place online. This year we are giving attendees the chance to reconnect and celebrate once again! With 80% of this year’s events being free of charge or giving you the option to ‘pay what you can’, we welcome you to dance, sing, and celebrate at any of our 70 plus events taking place in every province of Ireland. Highlights include Colm Tóibín in conversation with Padraig Regan, a series of events celebrating the Flikkers era, Seán Millar’s ‘Love Song Part 1’ in The Abbey Theatre, and the Bealtaine Discussion Series.
