Our Autumn Programme 2019 is now available with something in it for everyone.
Cultúrlann McAdam Ó Fiaich has launched its Autumn Programme with a variety of entertainment.
There is a particular emphasis on drama in the Autumn Programme with three dramas to take to the stage in Amharclann Mhic Cionnaith in the coming months.
‘Spliced’ will take place on teh 29th and 30th October as part of Belfast Interntaional Arts Festival. Identity and the GAA are the main themes of this one man show with actor Timmy Creed.
From the Splódar theathre company we will have ‘Medea le Euripides’. Medea is one of the most famour of the Greek classic based on famliy conflict. The production will be in the Irish language with renowned actress Tara Breathnach in the role of Medea.
We are delighted that the story of the Shaw's Road Gaeltacht will be told in November. To commemorate fifty years since the first Irish-medium school was established in the west of the city, the new drama 'Is Iomaí Rud a Tharla' will take to the stage. This is the story of the first people to lay the foundations for the vibrant Irish language community that we have in the city today, written by Nuala Ní Néill.
Among the classes as part of our lifelong learning programme here, Irish language classes are starting on 11th September. Also, bilingual yoga, pensioners' Irish language classes 'Na Saoithe Gan Locht' and a cultural course by Diarmuid Breslin entitled 'Oscail an Doras' will also take place.
For our younger audience, Na Bopóga, Aisling Óg Drama School, Babaithe Cultúir (Culture Babies) and Cumann Óige na bhFál will all be back again, in addition to art workshops for children and family fun for Halloween.
Among the art exhibitions that we will have in the coming months there will be one that is always close to our hearts, that being the annual art exhibition by the students of Coláiste Feirste.
We're very excited to announce that Scoil Cheoil na Cultúrlainne (the Cultúrlann Music School) is due to begin for the first time in October and will present yet another opportunity for young people in the area to immerse themselves in Gaelach culture.
There is certainly something for everyone in this wide-ranging programme and we hope to see you here! Copies of the programme are availablein Cultúrlann McAdam Ó Fiaich, or you can find out more about each of the events in the events section of our site.
