This year, the festival programme includes hands on creative workshops where the aim is to have lots of fun, while learning creative skills.

The available free workshops for kids this year has increased on last year and there are now even more options to choose from including printing with the Little Print Museum, upcycling craft workshops with Recreate, STEM workshops with the Young Einstein Science Camp, creative craft tables with Lisa Heavey and clay modelling workshops with Jumping Clay Dublin.

The workshops have a limit on numbers who can join at any time and advance booking is recommended for these activities to avoid disappointment.

For those who love to participate in the festival competitions, there is a wide choice again this year.

For the budding bakers among the festival goers – the Junior Bake-Off will be another opportunity to showcase their creative skills. The rules are simple – bake a cupcake (any size) and decorate it in any style you wish! Dazzle the judges with colour and flavour.

Entries can be brought along on the day and dropped into HQ on Main St before 2pm. The winner will be announced between 3 and 4.30 pm. The adult bakers, who wish to enter are also very welcome. They are asked to bake a sponge and wow the judges with your baking prowess – these entries are to be submitted to the Active Seniors Hub in St Maelruains before 2pm for judging.

For all aspiring photographers, the festival photography competition, sponsored by The Echo, is not to be missed.

Simply take photos live from the festival – publish them on the Tallafest Facebook or TCC Twitter pages, with the hastag #Tallafest2018.

The winning photos will be announced in The Echo on July 5.

Tallafest has something for all the family to get involved in again this year.
