Bow Street Acting Academy

Bow Street Acting Academy will house an array of events and activities throughout the day.

Hear the songs of revolution from Francy Devine and Terry Moylan, while Des Geraghty will recount the story of Captain William Partridge with musical assistance from the Clé Club.

Children and teenagers can choose from a wide variety of workshops and learn how to give a powerful speech, write a song, play the tin-whistle or make a map. There’s also story-telling, board-games, and a chance to see Brownbag Production’s “Give up Yer Aul Sins.”

Please Note

Bow St Acting Academy is not wheelchair accessible except for Studio 1.

RTÉ would like to gratefully acknowledge the support and participation of the individual speakers who were kind enough to share their research and private collections with the public as part of the RTÉ Reflecting the Rising project. A big thanks also to the many volunteers and actors who gave their time so generously to help make RTÉ Reflecting the Rising a memorable and successful day.
