Arán & Im is a theatrical performance in which well-known travel writer and broadcaster Manchán Magan bakes sourdough bread for 70 minutes while offering insights into the wonders of the Irish language – exploring potent words of landscape, terms of intuition and insight, and the many phrases that bring to life the mysterious glory of our natural world. It is a celebration of language, land and local food, with freshly-baked traditional sourdough bread for the audience to slice and spread with butter they churn themselves from Irish cream. Directed by Tom Creed. Designed by Tom de Paor. Produced and presented by Manchán Magan.

Peggy Seeger needs little introduction, being a totally unique artist who has carved a special place in the folk revival of both the UK and the USA. Now in her 80s, her light burns as brightly as ever, with legendary live performances that might include an unaccompanied traditional ballad, followed by an anecdote from her remarkable life, before launching into a topical song about drugs, war, hormones, politicians, unions, women, love or ecology.
