Samhain celebrates Irish culture with a focus on Limerick heritage and traditions surrounding Hallowe'en; with community involvement, and public participation at its core. Samhain celebrates and showcases the medieval quarter of Limerick City.

Lumen Street Theatre's vision is to add to the vibrant artistic life of Limerick City and County. We collaborate with distinctive and inspiring local community organisations to co-create new work that inspires pride and ownership of our cultural identity through education and street spectacle.

In one very special event, a new festival is born, and already it feels like it has an identity and is loved.
