County Laois celebrates creativity in older age with the annual May-time Bealtaine Festival. The Bealtaine festival is co-ordinated by the Laois Arts Office, and a comprehensive programme of events can be found on their website.
Established in 1995, Bealtine is Ireland’s national festival which celebrates the arts and creativity as we age. The festival takes place each May for the entire month and is run by Age & opportunity, the national organisation which promotes active and engaged living as we get older. The 2020 event listings have yet to be issued but it is certain that Laois will have a full programme again this year
