A Trojan War Horse

Saturday 19 August - Monday 28 August
Guildhall Square, Derry~Londonderry
outdoor event |

All day


Saturday 19 August – Monday 28 August

Guildhall Square

The horse has always been an important element in Greek and Irish culture. And of course the wooden horse of Troy (invented by Odysseus) has become a symbol of trickery and cunning.

A specially-commissioned giant wooden horse will dominate Guildhall Square for the duration of the festival.

Storytelling for children will happen inside of the Trojan Horse from August 19-28 (No storytelling on Aug 26).

 12.30-1.30 and 2-3pm

It will host storytelling daily for children, war-sports (echoing the Iliad) will be performed in its vicinity, and on Bank Holiday Monday the festival will culminate with an outdoor music event in Guildhall Square.
