There are 7 parades taking place tomorrow in the county to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. All the details can be found on the new Sligo Hub website: http://www.sligohub.com/st-patricks-day-events-in-sligo-2018/
It’s back to earth with a bang today after leaving my comfortable bubble of the theatre world. I was part of Sligo Acts at the Hawk’s Well Theatre. Basically around 40 members of the public signed up to be part of a stage show.
There’s a wonderful event taking place in County Mayo next month. If you want to explore the beautiful rolling landscape of The 61km long Croagh Patrick Heritage Trail, meet fellow walkers and find about more about this beautiful area this is well worth checking out.
So it’s Valentine’s Day – usually a hallmark day but today has been absolutely wonderful. Firstly it was Bloomin’ Fabulous Vintage Tea Party in aid of the Sligo Rape Crisis Centre.
Bloomin Fabulous, in association with Anderson’s Grill and Bar will host a Vintage Tea Party Fundraiser for Sligo Rape Crisis Centre this Valentine’s Day at Andersons beautiful new venue on Kempton Promenade.
There is an afternoon of imagination and wonder planned for all attendees filled with music, old fashioned romance, theatre, poetry, and tea.
Bloomin Fabulous’ JoAnne Neary will be joined by a host of award winning artistic talent making this an afternoon to remember.
• There will be performances by The Rabbit’s Riot Theatre Company and readings by Louise Kennedy and Mary Branley.
• You will be transported somewhere dreamy by Sarah Ferguson’s rendition of Moon River and Darktown’s sublime retro sounds.
• Bumper raffle with amazing prizes taking place.
• Prize for best hat ( and some have already started on their masterpieces)
Dress fancy, wear fancy dress or just come as you are.
Donations welcome on the door with all proceeds going to Sligo Rape Crisis Centre.
Every €25 raised enables the centre to deliver one hour of counselling or to deliver one hour of specialised trauma therapy training for their volunteer counselors. So please come and donate what you can.
Wednesday February 14th from 1 to 4pm
It’s a date!
Well it’s hard to believe that my little old blog is 9 years old! Those years fairly flew. The blog started as a place to get thoughts out of my head during a time when there was a lot of illness in the family and has kind of come full circle.
