The Community of Slane invites you to participate in an unforgettable experience – the Flame of Slane at 7.30pm on Easter Sunday 2013.
This event was first run in 2012 and was a great success. It is fair to say that the audience of about 2000 people were astonished. Have a look at the pictures and video from 2012 here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ChrgYbVgf0k
Easter Sunday March 31st sees the Flame Of Slane 2013 taking place on the very historical site of The Hill of Slane. Whilst maintaining the Flame theme, this will be a greatly expanded event which promises to be quite a gathering as the organizers plan to take you back in time. A living history show performed through the medium of light, sound, dance, re-enactments and pyrotechnics.
The Flame of Slane will be a Spectacular Pageant of music, flame, light and Fireworks with re-enactments, which take you back in time and provide amazing entertainment value for all who attend.
The Hill of Slane overlooks Ireland’s richest historical area. From its peak you can see Newgrange, Knowth, Dowth, The Hill of Tara and The Battle of Boyne Site. It is from this viewpoint that the inspiration came for the concept for The Flame of Slane, a re-enactment of many of the events and legends that this great location presided over.
The one and a half hour show includes Irish Mythology and battle re-enactments, a light show, music and poetry, the lighting of St Patricks Pascal Fire an exhilarating firework display and even a Celtic wedding where a couple are to get married for real.
The following is an outline of the programme which will be delivered by a combination of members of the community supported by professional providers. It may alter somewhat in the final stages of planning.
Along a half mile walk leading to the site will enter the spirit by the presence of medieval structures, performers and exhibits.
At the site there will be an introduction music and audio performance.
