Drama Festival Week 2011 Begins At Holycross Tipperary

With St Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, so why not take a night out and enjoy some traditional festive fun by attending the Tipperary Drama Festival, in Holycross, Thurles, Co Tipperary.

This major annual event takes to the stage for the week beginning the 18th March next to 26th March inclusive.

The hosts of this hugely attended Tipperary Festival, namely Holycross/Ballycahill Drama Group, have been successfully running this event since 1983.

This year the festival will present some great nights of theatre, performed by passionate theatre groups from all over Ireland, in their newly restored St. Michael’s Community Centre, beside the 13th century Abbey of  Holy Cross, former which now boasts comfortable seating, including a balcony area, for some 500 of its patrons.

Curtain rises at  8.30pm nightly during the festival, except for the final night, which will be 8.00pm.

Admission: Each night €12, with Student’s and O.A.P’s enjoying an entrance concession of €6.  Of course best value is their Season Ticket costing, I understand according to their Facebook, a mere €60 for all 9 performances.
