Announcement – Theme Night #28!

Once again we hope.

Current holder Sinéad Maguire has posted the golden jacket off to embroideress Amy O’Hara in order that it is ready for a new winner.

So Theme Night #28 must be on the horizon…

It may not yet happen until well into 2021 of course, but it is the nature of this year that while plans may not come to fruition, it is important to try to plan something all the same.

So mark it down – restrictions permitting, Theme Night #28 will take place in the Hawk’s Well Theatre on 11th-13th and 18th-20th Dec.


The official theme is Christmas – we could all do with a bit of Christmas cheer, and we may unofficially throw a couple of songs in that somehow sum up all that we have collectively been through over the last few months.

Unfortunately we won’t be able to fit the full theme night gang on stage, but we do have a great line-up nevertheless.

Joining myself and the band and string section for Part 1 (11th to 13th Dec) will be Aileen Concannon, Eoin Troy, Georgie Gorman, Sandy Kelly and Tabby Callaghan.

And for Part 2 (18th to 20th Dec) our special guests will be Cathy Jordan, Jamie Callaghan, Seamie O’Dowd, Sinéad Conway and Steve Wickham.

So here’s the bad news – there will be only 75 tickets available for each night, so despite there being 6 shows, overall there will be less than half the tickets on sale than there would for a usual 3-night full-capacity run. So you will HAVE to be quick.

Anyone on the theme night email list will get the opportunity to buy tickets first, so if you’re not on that already, sign up here.

In the meantime look after yourselves and if you haven’t already, check out out new music podcast featuring some of your theme night favourites – In The Lamplight.
