The Magical Christmas Marquee is the meeting point. Here The Elves will guide you to Santa’s Grotto for your Magical Christmas Visit with Santa Claus.

Tommy Tiernan – Paddy Crazy Horse Tour

University Concert Hall – 5th & 6th Dec at 20:00

Back on the road again Tommy Tiernan has a new show. He rants and raves, he dances and acts. He tries to be very silly and very serious at the same time. Using high theatricality and lots of dirty words, this is a fast paced and exuberant celebration of everything that’s wild, wrong and wonderful about being alive right here, right now. It is by turns clever and then really stupid. BE THERE !

The Waterboys

University Concert Hall – 7th Dec from 20:00 to 23:00

The music of The Waterboys has never ceased to evolve, from the influential mix of Celtic, gospel, country and rock on the classic “Fisherman’s Blues” to their latest album “Out of All This Blue”, which is maybe the most brilliantly daring and accomplished reinvention of The Waterboys to date!
