TSEAC's Dome Stage at Flavours of Fingal

Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th June 2024

Nestled in the quiet parklands of the stunning Newbridge House and Farm, just a short jaunt from Dublin airport, TSEAC's 'Dome Stage' at Flavours of Fingal is a kaleidoscope of artistic wonder. With a whole weekend of entertainment planned, the TSEAC Stage is a whimsical oasis where we invite you to get lost in the magic of music, theatre, and family fun.

At the TSEAC Dome Stage, magic blooms. From heartfelt ballads to toe-tapping beats, we’ve woven a tapestry of Irish sounds and theatrical delights. As the sun sets, our adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s ‘The Happy Prince’ enchants, and ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ dances to life. But it’s the Traditional House Party that truly unites us—with traditional music, dancing and plenty of fun for all ages. So come along and soak up the atmosphere and celebrate our rich and magical culture.

Here's a taste of what you can expect from the TSEAC stage:

From the boot-scootin’ beats of ‘Hawthorn Door’ to the heartfelt ballads of ‘The Dublin Trio’ our stage isn’t just set, its sizzling with the unmistakable sounds of Ireland.

From toe-tapping beats to theatrical delights, we transport you into a world of enchantment with exclusive adaptions of Oscar Wilde’s ‘The Happy Prince’ and a sneak peak of our 2024 TSEAC shakespearience ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. So let the magic wrap around you like a cosy quilt as we bring fairy tales to life with powerful sonnets, mischievous antics, and a little bit of TSEAC madness, because you all know that we do love a unique twist on everything that we do!

And because our rich heritage is at the heart of everything that we do, we are also hosting a good ol’ Traditional House Party in celebration of our Irish culture and community. Featuring traditional Irish Music, dancing and fun for all ages. 

Flavours of Fingal is free to attend and promises a fun-filled family day out for all ages, showcasing the best of food and drink produce, spectacular entertainment, shopping and so much more!
