Schools Event: What a World! The Great Irish Weather Book

Tuesday, 21 May
Smock Alley Theatre
€5. One free teacher ticket for every ten students.

How much do you really know about the weather? Join meteorologist and weather forecaster Joanna Donnelly and illustrator Fuchsia Macaree on a fascinating journey through Ireland’s weather in The Great Irish Weather Book. From cold fronts to climate change, and satellites to sun and storms, Joanna explains what weather is and how it happens (her favourite weather of all is a good thunderstorm, because they’re a wonderful example of the power of nature!). Fuchsia, an illustrator who loves to make books, posters, murals and maps, says her favourite type of weather is a crisp autumn day because it’s great for kicking leaves, but she also loves being cosy inside while hearing rain hit the roof.   

Tickets: €5 / Group of 10+ €3.50 per student, one free adult ticket for every ten students
