Tread Softly.... Festival, July 17th - 30th 2017

Tread Softly celebrates the legacy of brothers, Jack B. and William Butler Yeats. The festival runs in conjunction with the 58th Yeats International Summer School and this year aligns with Sligo Jazz Festival; all joining forces to create a central cultural festival for Sligo at the height of the tourist season. The festival offers a broad range of arts and literary events from exhibitions, theatre, music, children’s and family events, and guided walks through Yeats County. 

This year’s highlights include Jack B. Yeats Lives exhibition at The Model; Freddie White, SJP All Stars and Kieran Quinn’s Theme Night 18 at the Hawk’s Well Theatre; 90 Shades of Crazy Jane at the Hamilton Gallery; and as part of this year’s A Country Under Wave, productions of The Cat and the Moon by both The Shigeyama Family and Blue Raincoat Theatre.
