Sunday Miscellany 29 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 and the Henry Girls and more. 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

We'll also be at Collins Barracks for Culture Night as part of RTÉ Radio 1's Culture Night celebrations, at 4pm on Friday 21 September.  This free-of-charge event is now booked out but check for returns here or feel free to come down ahead of time on the day just in case of returns. While we can't guarantee entry to our own recording, if you don't get in to it, there are a number of other RTÉ events you may be interested in all happening at Collins Barracks: see https://www.rte.ie/culture/culture-night  

And we'll be at the Civic Theatre in Tallaght for a return visit to the Red Line Book Festival in mid-October (Tickets are already available here); and at the Theatre Royal in Waterford as part of Imagine Arts Festival on Saturday 27 October (booking details coming soon).

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!
