Gluren bij de Buren Festival Den Haag, 9 February 2020

On the 9th of February 2020 dancers from the Kilkenny School of Irish Dance performed during the ‘Gluren bij de Buren’ Festival in The Hague. ‘Gluren bij de Buren’ translates to ‘Peeking in on the neighbours’. During this festival people open their houses and turn their living rooms into small stages, for an afternoon of performances (music, dance, theatre etc). Members of the public then walk around the town and select which performances they would like to see. We held three sessions of Irish Dancing, and had a full living room with over 30 guests for each session.
