Wild Child Day

On Wednesday 21 August, we're encouraging kids and families to drop the devices, jump off the couch and get outdoors for Wild Child Day!

On this day, National Heritage Week will have a host of mainly free events specifically for children, from bug trails to storytelling sessions to craft workshops.

Heritage Week 2019 will take place from 17-25 August and this year's theme is Pastimes | Past Times. We encourage you to take a stroll through history and explore how our free time has evolved in often fascinating ways.

Coordinated by the Heritage Council, National Heritage Week is Ireland’s most popular cultural event and in 2019 half a million people are expected to participate in over 2,200 heritage events. National Heritage Week is part of European Heritage Days which promote Europe’s common cultural heritage.

Events will be listed on this website from May 2019.
