Sunday Miscellany 6 December 2009

***Our autumn/winter 2018 live tour continues!*** 

We'll be at the Theatre Royal in Waterford as part of Imagine Arts Festival on Saturday 27 October, with writers Grace Wells, John MacKenna, Lani O'Hanlon, Catherine Foley and John Connell: tickets now on sale here

On Wednesday 5 December we will be back in the National Concert Hall in Dublin for our annual and hugely popular Christmas concert with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra and special guests. Tickets for this usually sell out by November -- and they're on sale already, here

And you can find out all about our big plans for this programme's own 50th birthday at Miscellany50 -- a unique winter festival of new writing and music taking place at the Project Arts Centre on 7-9 December, making for an entirely new and separate radio series, Miscellany50, in 2019.   

Do book early to avoid disappointment, and we hope to see you at some of these events in the near future!
