A tantalizing festival world awaits family and friends, as Russborough House in Blessington swings open its gates for its first EVER festival on the 28th – 30th June. Kaleidoscope Festival will provide three days of high energy, full colour, multi–stage entertainment over 15 stages, designed to entice and enthrall all, from babes in arms to those eligible for a bus pass!

The extensive creative programme has been tailored to cater for each and every member of the modern Irish family. Kaleidoscope offers specific programs for ‘smallies’, for 4-8, 8-12 and 12-16 year olds, together with all the festival favourites for adults of all ages! Children and teen programmes will take place within Russborough’s walled garden and an utterly enchanting fairy fort located on the forests edge. Every element of the programme has been carefully selected because it is thought provoking, interactive and inspirational, as well as hugely entertaining! We are delighted to welcome Fighting Words, Science Gallery and conservationist and animal enthusiast Collie Ennis to the creative team – specialists and enthusiasts in their fields and world leading innovators in inspirational learning. And that’s not all – parents with babes in arms can bust some moves in the Baby Disco. For the energetic at heart – a feast of urban and adventure sports, water sports, morning runs and other endorphin inducing activities. Sooth your mind and body with their wellness program which includes meditation, tai chi and yoga. Their woodland spa offers access to a selection of massage treatments, hot tubs and sea weed baths. The Scrumdiddlyumptious Festival of Food is a feast of fun for everyone! And all of this in addition to the arts festival favourites of theatre, spoken word, visual art, circus, cinema, comedy and music. Kaleidoscope is a veritable feast of full family participation!
