The Cauldron of Smithfield Festival is an annual large- scale series of events that engages young people and families in the greater Smithfield and Stoneybatter areas and beyond. It provide a genuine alternative to bonfires, fireworks and general anti-social behaviours that are associated with that time of year.
Due to the on-going Covid 19 restrictions, we have made the decision to take THE CAULDRON OF SMITHFIELD festival online.
The festival will have a fantastic line up of incredible performers which will be recorded in advance in Smock Alley Theatre and live-streamed on Halloween Night.
The 3 hour broadcast will feature video submissions and interviews from local participants behind-the- scenes footage from workshops, interviews with locals, positive messages from local young people and a whole range of performances including Local Dance Groups, Singers, Hip Hop artists, Storytelling, Theatre, Animations and much more…..
There will be a big focus on engaging young people in various creative and performance workshops in the weeks leading up to Halloween. Many of these performances will be featured as part of the online broadcast.
We will be launching a comprehensive marketing campaign to promote all of our activities and ensure maximum engagement from the local community and encourage people to stay safe at home on Halloween Night and enjoy an evening of entertainment.
Health and Safety is of paramount importance to the organisers.
Activities will only take place as long as we can be assured that they can be executed safely and within the safety guidelines recommended by the HSE at that time.
