Across Africa

Across AfricaThe Festival of Curiosity

[blockquote_right]Thu 20 | 1pm | Main Space

Family event recommended for children aged 5+[/blockquote_right]

A lively family show packed full of giggles. Join Catherine McGuinness as she takes you back in time to follow in the footsteps of Ireland’s forgotten explorer, Dr Thomas Heazle Park. As doctor to the infamous Henry Morton Stanley’s African exhibition, he was the first Irish person to see what was then known as “deepest, darkest Africa”.

Part storytelling, part demonstrations, ‘Across Africa’ evokes a time long gone, where adventurers were the celebrities and most of Africa was waiting to be explored. A must see show for the young (or young at heart) explorer, ‘Across Africa’ will map the journey Thomas undertook, explore the animals he would have seen, the conditions of explorations in the 1800’s and the new people he would have met on the way. And then there are the jungle donkeys!

Duration: 60min
