This now well-established event in the Clonter calendar offers a great day out for all the family, from lucky finds amongst the car boots to hand-made craft and vintage clothes stalls, with other attractions, from good old-fashioned fair games and a fortune teller, to face-painting and birds of prey, with live music through the day, from Folk to Opera!
Sometimes folk, sometimes not. India Electric Co. use traditional instruments in contemporary styles to explore diverse themes from Eastern Europe, Irish traditions and modern urban alienation to end up with something “quirky and glittery - a veritable musical magpie’s nest” (BBC Radio 3). This is a Ramsey Room session.
The opera gala consists of a variety of well loved opera arias, duets, and ensembles, followed by some musical theatre classics, in a well established operative prelude to Christmas, and is ideal for anyone who has not been to an opera before, but would like to dip their toe in the water, before committing to a full blown one. Each item is set into context by the director, so no prior knowledge necessary.
