Best of the rest . . .



The Backyard Arts Centre in Moynehall, Cavan, will be showcasing members of local collective Rianta and their latest work, in an exhibition called In Context. The exhibition will open with a recital from Cavan Sinfonia and Cavan Town Comhaltas. The musical genres will range from jazz to traditional and audiences will also be treated to a late supper. It begins at 7.30pm and should be over by 10pm. No admission charge (supper is free also) and pre-booking not necessary. See


A Day in the Life of a Theatre Practitioner One of the country’s best-known regional theatres, Hawk’s Well Theatre, is giving audiences an insight into modern professional theatre production. The event will include input from practitioners, such as theatre directors, actors and technical crew. It’s an early event, taking place from 1-2pm. See

North Tipperary Community Reading of ‘Ulysses’ by James Joyce The Source Arts Centre and Thurles Library Support are taking on the task of a marathon reading of Ulysses, which will involve 18 voluntary groups reading a chapter of the novel each. They expect this will take up to 26 hours to complete and the reading will continue through the night. It should end at noon on Saturday. A variety of other events will take place at the centre during the reading, including lunch and an evening meal and proceeds raised will go towards Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin. Starts at 10.30am.


Monster Session and Ceilí It’s hard to beat a good session, and Bray Comhaltas is looking to put on a large gathering of musicians and dancers at the Civic Plaza, beside The Mermaid Arts Centre, from 6pm tomorrow. All ages and abilities are welcome, and the organisers say it is an ideal opportunity for ceilí novices to take part.


‘The Soul of Youth’ An Irish premiere is taking place in Carlow tomorrow, with the screening of William Desmond Taylor’s film The Soul of Youth, which looks at social issues through the eyes of a child. The film will be screened with live musical accompaniment and the organisers say it will be introduced by a surprise Hollywood guest, although they remain tight lipped as to who it will be. The screening starts in the George Bernard Shaw Theatre at 8pm.


There’s a full range of events – everything from kids “fridge door” poetry, to flower arranging to music, by way of make-up demonstrations and set dancing. But among the more intriguing events are: the glass blowing demonstration at St Patrick’s Trian; Coda Horns, a French horn group at 7.30pm at Navan Centre and Fort; and the Sutemos “Dance Out”, which means that dancers from the group could pop up anywhere at any time.
