Matilda The Musical Sing-Along
Children would also love to go for a show of Roald Dahl’s classic – Matilda. Directed by Matthew Warchus, Matilda The Musical Sing-Along is a winner when it comes to good, wholesome family entertainment. Dennis Kelly adapts the Royal Shakespeare Company’s production for the big screen, with original music and lyrics by Tim Minchin.
The film is currently being screened exclusively at cinemas across the UK and Ireland.
Funderland at the RDS
Funderland doesn’t really need an introduction as it’s possibly the largest travelling amusement park event in Europe. It offers as many as fifteen different thrilling attractions carefully selected from among the top attractions in Europe, and has always been very popular in Ireland.
Funderland offers something for everyone – for those who love to be suspended upside down or turned over and whisked through the air! There’s also plenty of children-friendly rides and attractions.
