David O'Doherty ULTRASOUND

From: 15 Feb 2020
To: 15 Feb 2020
The hairy Enya is delighted to be coming to Solstice Arts Centre with a brand new show made up of talking and songs played on the plastic keyboard he got for his Confirmation. Once again, he will try to fix everything that is wrong in the world. SPOILER ALERT: once again he will fail.


Kids Rock with Kyle Riley

From: 15 Feb 2020
To: 15 Feb 2020
It’s entertaining, it’s engaging, and it’s guaranteed to get you and your little ones moving! Kids Rock with Kyle Riley is a genre-busting musical concert for kids that is fun for the whole family. It may be perfectly curated for under 7s but the music spans generations and introduces Kyle’s own brand of catchy kid’s tunes. Don’t just listen to the music, be a part of it!


Hansel and Gretel - Irish National Opera

From: 18 Feb 2020
To: 18 Feb 2020
One of the greatest operas about children. Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel is full of music that is sweet and beguiling, and it combines childlike simplicity with heart aching beauty. He wanted a plot that ‘was not made up of murders, brutal deaths, operetta-like nonsense, or sugar-sweet fairy tales’. Do not be fooled. This is a story of greed and starvation, mouth-wateringly sugar-coated.


Midterm Crafts Camp

From: 20 Feb 2020
To: 20 Feb 2020
Keep them creative this midterm with Trisha from Creative Genie who will help your little ones create and make all kinds of spring-themed crafts while learning lots of new skills over three mornings.

Lords of Strut: Absolute Legends

From: 22 Feb 2020
To: 22 Feb 2020
Fusing their signature combination of dizzying acrobatics, riotous comedy and big heart, Street Performance World Champions and Britain’s Got Talent favourites Lords of Strut deliver their most ridiculous and sublime family show to date.

Supporting film in school curricula and promoting film literacy for children and young people - Spoiled 30-something Lenny is living the fast life.

Monos (2019)

From: 26 Feb 2020
To: 26 Feb 2020
Exiled on a remote mountainside in South America, the Monos are a group of teenage soldiers. Their job: to guard a single hostage. They have their orders but also their rituals, and when the group’s leadership is tested, the dynamics shift and the few ties the Monos had to reality and the outside world dissolve. A powerful, beautifully surreal film.


Contact (1997) – Special Free Screening

From: 27 Feb 2020
To: 27 Feb 2020
Jodie Foster and Matthew McConaughey star in this gripping story of a radio astronomer who receives the first extraterrestrial radio signal ever picked up on Earth.

See page X for details on Bolster’s exhibition You Are Made of Stardust.


Perlee - Vinyl Party Show

From: 28 Feb 2020
To: 28 Feb 2020
A few years ago Saramai Leech and Cormac O’Keeffe settled in an out-of-the-way cottage on an estate a few miles out from their home town Navan, Co. Meath. They made a studio in their kitchen and when they left the door open the peahens and chickens would curiously make their way inside. During these years in the ‘middle of nowhere’ with feathered creatures and tall old trees, Perlee was born. Vocal harmonies, synths, strangely tuned and detuned reverberant guitars abound in a vast yet minimal sound.


IFI Education: Senior Spanish - Everybody Knows

To: 02 Mar 2020
Supporting film in school curricula and promoting film literacy for children and young people - Laura returns from Argentina with her two children for a family wedding in her Spanish hometown.

Jason Byrne - Wrecked but Ready

From: 05 Mar 2020
To: 05 Mar 2020
Jason Byrne has had a hard year. But he doesn’t want to talk about that. He’s wrecked but ready. Ready for a laugh. This show is a celebration. A celebration of triumph over adversity. A celebration of the fact that everybody’d got their own crap going on and they don’t need to listen to someone else moaning about their problems. So, leave your worries at the door and find out why ‘The Times’ described Jason as ‘The Outright King of Live Comedy’.


Prints of Stardust

From: 05 Mar 2020
To: 05 Mar 2020

From: 06 Mar 2020
To: 06 Mar 2020
Baz Ashmawy (50 Ways to Kill Your Mammy, Wingman) has a brand new show called Family Matters.

Now as father to six kids, Baz has a unique perspective on their upbringing versus his own. A natural comic storyteller, Baz has been making people laugh since long before he was on TV. Special guests to be announced.
