'What the Folk! gives us nostalgia in unembarrassed spades, there is an infectious sincerity in this charming authentic and intimate performance. The best compliment that can be paid is that you really want to know more' The Irish Times

Uncover what lies fermenting between the jigs and the reels at the heart of Ireland’s National Folk Theatre. What the Folk! is an intimate and revealing session for the culturally curious - part storytelling, part impromptu knees-up, looking beyond the clichés to the passion and pain of a lifetime of practice, graft and dedication. Find out about the bubble-wrap horses, how the steps talk and fingers dance, the 40 sheep, the embarrassing scenes and the amorous undertones. Visit us and be part of the conversation!

What the Folk! takes place at a mystery location in Cork City. Ticket holders will be contacted with details of a meeting point prior to the event.
