Strule Arts Centre is gearing up for another busy season thanks to a dynamic events programme for the Autumn Winter season ahead packed with music, theatre, talks and workshops.

Music in the new programme is a diverse mix with something to suit a variety of musical tastes. First to take to the stage this autumn is the sensational The Lost Brothers, look out for the very talented Ruth McGinley, enjoy popular quirky all girl group Wookalily and let Peter Corry take you through an enjoyable journey of musical theatre. Fermanagh and Omagh District Council Irish Language Development Unit hosts Ceolchoirm with the family based four piece group Na Ceannabháin Bhána, Ciaran Houlihan will bring the house down with his superb tribute to the King of music in the Elvis Spectacular Show. The 4 of Us bring their critically acclaimed acoustic show to Strule Arts Centre and you can delight in the outstanding choral singers from the National Youth Choir. With Foster and Allen, Country Ladies of the Moment, The Rag Dolls – Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons Tribute, Underhill Rose, Phil Coulter, JP Mac, Janet Devlin, The Whistlin’ Donkeys and the High Kings you are spoilt for choice with music performances from quality artists.

Comedy this season comes from an assortment of acts. Be sure and book your tickets for The Nuala’s, this trio of ladies have plenty of blistering chat in this one night only performance that will leave you helpless with laughter. Join Tim McGarry as he ‘Goes over the Top’ in his entertaining new stand up show. Conal Gallen is ‘Only Joking’ when he returns to the stage at Strule Arts Centre in this hilarious one man show and more comedy entertainment with Father Ted star Joe Rooney.

Theatre goers will enjoy some superb productions with Hazel Wand Theatre School when they present the Jane Austin classic Pride and Prejudice. Green Shoot Productions presents the incredible one woman show Two Sore Legs, a powerful, autobiographical play set in 1950’s Belfast. The life and times of one of Ireland’s most extraordinary human rights campaigners will take to the stage with Aisling Ghéar Theatre Company in their retelling of Alice Milligan ‘A Girl of Genius’. The literary spine chiller Female Gothic is a masterpiece in theatre, and the experiences of the individuals who patrolled the border during the height of the conflict is explored in Kabosh Theatres play ‘Green and Blue’. And enjoy some brilliant comic banter and attempt to understand Mid Ulster culture in the football focused production ‘Extra Time’.

Omagh Arts Committee host the 15th Benedict Kiely Literary Festival. Omagh’s Literary Festival celebrates the work of Omagh Writer and Broadcaster Benedict Kiely. The weekend is filled with readings, discussions and workshops from leading and emerging writers and a superb exhibition by Omagh Photography Club accompanies the festival.
