Dear All,

This is a reminder that Arts Club this Monday January 7th, departs from its usual format in featuring a play entitled "The Great Hunger", one of the great work’s of Irish literature by Patrick Kavanagh. This one man play performed by Peter Duffy is guaranteed to both enrapture and entertain evoking memories of life on a small rural farm in the 1930’s, early 1940’s. The play is 1hr and 15 mins long and following the performance, Sarah Rogers on fiddle will treat the audience to an array of music reminiscent of this era in Ireland.

The performance will kick off at 8.30 sharp so please come early to avoid disruption to the performance.

Doors open at 8pm and tickets will be available at the door on a first come, first served basis.
