I am sorry to inform you that our trusted and beloved festival is not going to take place this year.

Because not enough people registered and of those only 20% actually payed.
I am a volunteer in this and the Venue wants me to pay a part of the costs ahead because they have other costumers waiting.
Those who registered and payed will get a full refund within a few days.
Like noted in the terms of service your travel insurance should cover all other costs.
Let me know if you need some kind of written confirmation.

Next year we will be back with a new plan, we are going for Slovenia.
We hope you will trust to play with us again.

Those of you who were still thinking of going to a good festival,
there is loads of alternatives:
Sicily or
Bosnia at the same time, and
Croatia in the beginning of july or
Hungary in july
and Hungary in august.

We are sad and sorry.

This is all you need to have a very good Acro-experience, for beginners to very advanced.
We'll make it worth your while!!


The venue we booked is well equipped with all we need!
We will offer three meals per day, two cold and and a cooked dinner.
Sleeping is included for camping and there are options for stretchers in a warmed shed and renting a cabin (2/3) persons.
We will be training outside on the grass, but since the Irish weather is unreliable we will also accomodate indoor space and a circustent.
and hopefully all together we can make it our dream acro week!

Workshops

7 days with at least 40 hours of workshops by:

The Venue

THE BELLURGAN ESTATE
A short step from the house, the cottage walk leads you towards ‘Tippings Wood’ and as you pass through the wonderfully crafted stone arch, a lake of 1.2 acres lies to your left. As the amazing 200 acres of deciduous woodlands unfolds all around you, the ground rises to the summit of Tippings Rock, where views of Ravensdale, The Cooley Peninsula and the sea give you ample reward for your short climb. Nestled throughout the 200 acres of woodlands there are a wide variety of outdoor activities to cater for everyones needs. At Bellurgan Park activities promoting a healthy outdoor experience are centred around a strong sense of community.

The Food

The food will be VEGAN, cooked at the site by {?} and vegetables will be freshly harvested from their own garden from just past the stone arch under the big tree.

Since this is an Acrobat for Acrobats festival we may ask you too to do some chores like cleaning or washing up.
