For What Now? Hoopla Troupla will be sending two of their bouncy stilt walkers and two of their hula hoopers for a walk up Shop Street and back to Áras na nGael. Keep an eye out for them before 1pm on Saturday. When they get back, they’ll be face painting and performing in the Yard for the rest of the day. We hear tell of something rather special to open our evening proceedings on Saturday…

Hoopla Troupla are a performance group of Contemporary Circus Arts, Entertainment and Education based in Galway.

Recent shows include Galway Zombie Walk in Aid of Jigsaw, and a circus workshop for kids as part of An Áit Eile’s contribution to Our Place @ Merlin Woods’.
