Listen Janey Mac | 7pm
See the history of Cork and Ireland with Janey Mac! Janey Mac and her puppy ‘Pepper’ make a wish in the magical stone circle in Aunty Megan’s back yard and find themselves transported back in time, trying to find each other and their way home. Janey meets a boy who lives in a ring fort who has trouble concentrating on his chores; helps Finbar and Dunbar pick a spot to build their church and has to rescue Pepper from the clutches of Gobnet, queen of the medieval slums; and still gets home in time for tea.

is a charming, fun exploration of the history of Cork and Ireland through puppetry and song. It’s and a mild cautionary tale reminding us all how lucky we are to live in the 21st century!

The Tallest Smallest Circus Show | 7:45pm
When a simple truck driver opens a magic box of circus props the show takes off all by itself! Will a clueless Ringmaster with no performers be able to prove the old adage “the show must go on”? He is going to require a lot of help if a show with jugglers, acrobats, daredevil clowns and performing elephants is to reach its finale.

County Hall is delighted to host a jam-packed evening of Culture Night events. Find locally made treasures at the Cork Craft & Design Market; explore diary writing in workshops with memoirist Alice Carey; delight kids and kids at heart with Dowtcha Puppets’ Listen Janey Mac, Arran Towers’ The Tallest Smallest Circus Show, and balloon art from Aaron the Balloon Man; chill out to jazz trio Filology with poet Bernadette Gallagher; and enjoy readings from award-winning bilingual poet Doireann Ní Ghríofa while artist Hazel Hurley illustrates your view from the 17th floor.
