Sunday Miscellany 22 October 2017

***Coming up, a feast of live events for autumn/winter 2018!***:  In September, Sunday Miscellany visits Derry for the first time, for a special, not-to-be-missed programme on the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights movement, with writers including Eamonn McCann, Anne Devlin, Colette Bryce, Susan McKay and Andy Hinds, and live music from the wonderful Reevah, Henry Girls and Clodagh Warnock. That’s happening at 8pm Saturday 29th September 2018 at the Playhouse in Derry.  There's just a small number of audience tickets left: see derryplayhouse.co.uk

And we'll be at the Civic Theatre in Tallaght for a return visit to the Red Line Book Festival in mid-October, with writers Frankie Gaffney, Eileen Casey, Rosaleen McDonagh and more, and music from the Finns and the Far Flung Trio (Tickets are already available here); and 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 O'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!
