SPRAOI Family Fun Day at CIT

Date: 22nd June 2013
Time: all day, see below for details
Venue: NEXUS



SPRAOI is CIT's Gathering event which promises fun for all the family.


CIT, in association with The Gathering, would like to extend a very warm invitation to you to join in a family fun day on Saturday, 22 June 2013.  All activities are free of charge and cater for all age groups.  Events will commence in CIT Bishopstown Campus at 11.00 a.m. and will continue in the afternoon in the CIT Crawford College of Art and Design, and in the evening at CIT Cork School of Music.

The CIT courtyard will host Cork Community Circus performers, face painters, Blarney Brass & Reed Band, Blackrock Castle Observatory StarDome, artisan and food stalls.  Other activities include performances from Dowtcha Puppets, a cookery demonstration, Coder Dojo, a ‘sea quest’ treasure hunt, music workshops, and ceramic and puppet-making workshops.

Three CIT alumni have been invited to return to CIT to share their successful careers and experiences after leaving CIT.  We are pleased to welcome back Peter Kelly, better known as Franc, one of Ireland’s best known wedding planners.  Franc operates a very successful event design company specialising in ‘Weddings by Franc’, and will host an interactive event-design session commencing at 11.00 a.m.
At 12.00 noon, we move from design with flair to sport with flair as we are delighted to welcome back two of Cork’s sporting heroes: Conor Counihan and Donal Óg Cusack.  Conor is the current manager of the Cork Senior Football team and Donal Óg is one of Cork’s iconic goal keepers.  Conor and Donal Óg will be in conversation with sports reporter, Diarmuid Sheehan.

At 4.00 p.m., graduates of CIT Crawford College of Art & Design are invited to a BBQ in Sharman Crawford Street to continue celebrations.

Finally, at 7.30 p.m. in CIT Cork School of Music, on Union Quay, there will be a concert titled ‘Rising Stars’ to highlight past and present musicians at the school.

We are delighted to present all of our events free of charge; however, some of the events have a limited number of spaces, so booking is required.
