Seafest.

Secret Life of Plastic will be at Seafest. I have been invited to do a talk and have a stand in the Look West Marquee at Seafest this year!!!!  So excited, I can’t wait but I’m also really nervous… Seafest which is coordinated by the Marine Institute in Galway is Ireland National Maritime Festival. It runs from Friday 30th June to Sunday 2nd July. This is a fantastic event that is all things Marine based; promoting our oceans, their benefits and beauty, and our rich maritime heritage.

Activities for all ages

This will be a fantastic weekend full of activities for all ages.  You’ll have a chance to learn loads about the sea and its inhabitants, experience sailing or kayaking (for free if you book ahead!!), explore some big ships, meet the builders of traditional boats and watch a boat building demonstration. There are interactive science exhibitions and a kid zone with lots of activities to keep the little ones entertained, and don’t be surprised if you find yourself in the middle of a sword fight between a couple of Buccaneers, or if you come face to face with a giant sea creature exploring the streets of the Festival Village!

The Look West Marquee

The Look West Marquee where I can be found all weekend is all about sea and surf with designers and artisan businesses from the west who are inspired in some way by the sea.  This is also the place where you can see some gorgeous short films by surfers exploring the absolute beauty of the sea.  This marquee is sponsored by the Western Development Commission and is going all out to show what a wealth of talent and creativity we have along our coast and through the western counties.

This really is going to be a fantastic weekend with something for everyone, so hope to see you there!! Secret Life of Plastic will be talking in the Look West Marquee at 11 am on Friday morning so if you’re around come and say hi…
