Local Artist Exhibition on today in the Old Church Centre
Hope everyone is enjoying the last drops of summer today, so good to see the sun shining on a bank holiday. We are open today until 5pm so why not pop in and see our Local Artist Exhibition? Bridget and Alastair will be here to show you around and even take a few pounds off you if you are interested in buying a painting.
The exhibition runs until 18 September and you can pop in to view the work on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays between 12-4pm. Here is a wee taste of what is on offer…
Changes to Culture & Heritage Month programme
There have been a couple of slight changes to our September Culture & Heritage programme since our last newsletter. Please note that our afternoon of poetry and prose will now just be with Bernie McGill – and we are delighted she is able to do both the workshop and reading.
Also – the Éigse na Glinntí weekend is the 23-25 September so we will be showing An Cailín Ciúin on Sunday 25 September at 7.30pm and you can get your tickets here.
The Maritime Heritage Weekend is the first of our weekends and we are grateful to our faithful subscribers for signing up to the boat trip which is entirely sold out! There are still tickets available for the children’s storytelling workshop which you can buy here. On Sunday 4 September, the Redbay RNLI & Glens of Antrim Historical Society event is free, so please do come along and hear what these two local groups have got to share about our maritime heritage.
There are full details on our website or you can take a look at our programme below:
Kabosh Theatre returns with Green and Blue
We are delighted to welcome back Kabosh for their award-winning Green & Blue which explores the painful and humorous realities faced by the individuals who patrolled the border during the height of the conflict.
Written by Laurence McKeown, directed by Paula McFetridge
An officer from the Royal Ulster Constabulary in his green uniform and Eddie from An Garda Síochána, resplendent in blue, communicate via crackly radios until an explosive incident forces them to meet across a field only farmers know the location of.
Focusing on what it’s like to be hunted when you’re protecting a man-made line on the ground, the play looks at the societal and human cost of borders.
Green & Blue is based on real-life interviews with former serving officers.
