Summer Fundraiser in aid of Sirius Arts Centre – Saturday 22 June 7.30pm till late

Tickets €30 available online and through office e: info@siriusartscentre.ie,
t: 021 4813790. If you can’t make it you can still buy a virtual ticket online, or give it to someone else!

Following the success of the last two years, the Sirius summer party is now an annual date in the Cobh diary, with b-b-que, drinks on the balcony, music and other performances. Not to be missed!

Sirius Arts Centre is a multi-disciplinary arts organisation that is housed in a beautiful Italiante building designed by Anthony Salvin in 1854 to house the Royal Cork Yacht Club – the oldest in the world. Salvin was best known for his restoration work on Windsor Castle and the Tower of London. This is the only example of his work in Ireland. The organisation receives very little in the way of funding for the upkeep of this magnificent heritage building. This event will help to raise much needed funds for this purpose.

Tickets cost €30 which includes dinner (bar-b-que and buffet by Comida), music and other happenings into the wee hours. The line-up for the evening includes performance artist Áine Phillips (of the now infamous buttered couch fame!), music from a jazz duo and Dublin-born hip-hop, rap and soul legend 0phelia McCabe. More to be announced.

There will also be an opportunity to win some very special raffle prizes, keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for details.
