Edenderry like you’ve never seen it before with weird and wonderful chairs dotted around the town square. Envisioned by local artist, Louise O’Brien, this spectacular community arts project encourages you to fill your town square with all manner of chairs.

You are invited to bring your favourite chair, or a chair you have created, or are thinking of making with bits and bobs - an imaginative concoction. Gather in the town square with chairs that are full of memories and stories. Or donate a chair or take part in a chair exchange!

Be part of a unique installation of chairs immersed in music, song, moving image, dance and spoken word. Featuring sonic bog fonics from internationally renowned composer and soundscape artist Anne Cleare. The incredible talents of young musicians involved in Music Generation Offaly/ Westmeath and in partnership with Youth Work Ireland (Midlands) and the Edenderry Youth Café will be showcased. And in addition, the students and teachers from the Eden School of Music will animate the evening with their voices and musical instruments.
