Dancing at Lughnasa: Fri, 18 Apr 2014

Theatre by the Lake
Lughnasa: ancient Celtic pagan festival at the beginning of harvest. Also called Lammas; still celebrated in Ireland. It’s 1936 and in rural Donegal a way of life is about to end. For the five unmarried Mundy sisters and their young nephew Michael, Lughnasa not only marks the changing of the seasons but also a change in their lives. When their missionary brother Jack returns from years abroad and Michael’s father arrives on an unexpected visit, the sisters soon realise the men have brought home more baggage than just their suitcases. The sisters’ beloved wireless brings a welcome escape, with dancing, laughter and moments of tenderness. But beneath the brave faces, these women are fighting to keep body and soul together. Brian Friel’s semi-autobiographical story is an internationally renowned and multi-award-winning play. A powerful portrayal of the yearning of the human spirit to break free.

Our multi-activty days are based in Langdale where there is somewhere to get changed and a pub to warm up in after your adventure. The morning will start with an introduction to rock climbing; you will get to try a range of climbs and learn the climbing basics. You will learn how to "tie-in" (tie the rope to your climbing harness) and how to "belay" (hold the rope for your climbing partner). You will also get a chance to try abseiling. After lunch you will go gorge walking which is also known as gill scrambling ("gill" is a Lake District word for mountain stream). You will be scrambling up Stickle Ghyll, traversing along the side of pools, climbing up waterfalls and (if you want to) getting very wet. You don't need any experience or any specialist equipment. There will be a maximum of six people per instructor. This is what ou
