Big week at the Moat

While The Moat Club's Bookworms is under way, the busy bees at The Moat Theatre are still plugging away for their other shows, writes Celine Garvey.

Music is at the forefront with Mick Flannery there this weekend. The former stonemason will be joined by his Aunt Karrie on stage as support. It really is a family affair and if you are lucky enough to have a ticket for this show, you might just get a chance to compare who looks like who! Mick plays on Sunday 16 October, and tickets are limited (if not sold out by now). Also Dog Lovers, The Duck & Cup Café at The Moat Theatre are holding a fundraising day for Madra on the same day as Mick. You can grab a coffee booster before the gig from Amy.

'Word on the Street' from Riff Raff Drama group Newbridge takes to the stage on Thursday 20 and Friday 21 October. Down Town New York, 1933, Prohibition has ended, there’s a new President, and times seem to be getting better until a Local Mob Boss is found in a Dumpster down an alley. Co Directed by Bro Michael Broderick & Catherine Connolly it promises deception and corruption with great acting to boot.

‘The Songs & Tall Tales of Jerry Fish’ is an intimate, stripped-down, theatre style show in which Jerry performs his favourite songs from a career spanning over two decades. The Emotional Fish singer is still fresh in a lot of people's mind from his Electric Picnic performance and will be bringing his own style of fun to The Moat Theatre stage. Moustache and all, check him out on Saturday 22 October for a very reasonable €16.

Back for another year of Halloween Magic, Jackula is one for the all the family. Magic tricks for all ages and dress up too, Jackula will get you in the mood for the spooky season with lots of fun and games. It’s for ages four and over so why not bring a party of kiddies along on Sunday 23rd October at 4pm?
