Lots on in Armagh

SATIRICAL comedy, sparkling vocal harmonies and acclaimed drama are the order of the day at The Market Place Theatre in Armagh this St Patrick’s weekend.

‘Ashelin’ will delight audiences at The Market Place on Thursday, March 15 at 8pm. Tickets are priced £13 each.

They are a band of five sisters - Cassy, Joesie, Kaliyan, Shaelin, and Thea – from Newfoundland, Canada, who have embarked on a musical journey that is winning them attention and fans around the world.

Following the huge success of ‘Tim McGarry’s Irish History Lesson’ the lanky guru is back at The Market Place with a new one-man stand-up show.

This time Tim has set his satirical sights on all things political. In a country where ex-terrorists and even Jim Allister can get elected, Tim thinks maybe it’s time he had a go. ‘Tim McGarry’s Political Party’ sits at The Market Place on Friday, March 16 at 8pm. Tickets are priced £15 each.

Prime Cut Productions return on Tuesday, March 20 with their acclaimed comedy ‘Shoot The Crow’, following a sell-out performance at The Market Place last year.

Ding Ding, Randolph, Socrates and Petesy - four tilers working on a Belfast building dreaming of better things. There’s an opportunity to make a few bob on the sly, but not all of them can commit the same petty crime. Owen McCafferty’s acclaimed comedy has been presented around the world from the West End to Tokyo. Tickets for ‘Shoot The Crow’ are priced £14.50 and £12.50 (concession).

Bookings for all events can be made through the Box Office on 3752 1821, or online at www.marketplacearmagh.com
