Day Trip to Abbey Theatre Dublin to see Le Bon Crubeen
Saturday 8th September| £59pp (includes coach,lunch and ticket to the show)
Day trip to the Abbey Theatre in Dublin to see the matinee show Jimmy’s Hall with lunch at Le Bon Crubeen. “Bursting with music, dance, poetry and song, the must see feel good show of last summer returns”.
Jimmy’s Hall tells the true story of Leitrim farmer Jimmy Gralton, the only Irishman deported from his own country. His crime was to build a dance hall where he encouraged the local community to learn, to argue and to dream, but above all to dance and have fun. As the hall grew in popularity its free-spirited reputation brought it to the attention of the church and politicians who forced Jimmy to flee and the hall to close.
A decade later, at the height of the Depression, Jimmy returns from the US. The hall stands abandoned but as Jimmy sees the poverty and growing oppression in the village, the leader and activist within him is stirred. He decides to re-open the hall, and so takes on the established authorities of the church and the government.
The coach will depart from the Grand Opera House at 9am on Saturday 8th September with a comfort stop at Apple Green Services on the way down to Dublin and back up to Belfast. Lunch will be at 12pm and matinee starts at 2pm.
Please book through the Box Office on 028 90241919 and as always you are welcome to bring your guests.
