The superb Christmas performances continue at Armagh’s Market Place Theatre, providing some much-needed respite from the Christmas hustle and bustle this December.


The festive favourite, ‘Christmas With Cantilena’ is back at Armagh’s Market Place Theatre on Wednesday 20 December. We all dream of a White Christmas and Happy Holidays, so Armagh’s sensational a cappella group ‘Cantilena’ pour some festive spirit into our Christmas Celebrations as they ring in the festive season in their own inimitable a cappella style. This evening of well-known traditional carols and popular Christmas songs, accompanied by the festive atmosphere, mulled wine and mince pies, will definitely put a Christmassy glow in your cheeks. Early booking is strongly recommended for this ever-popular show that welcomes the holidays in true festive style. Tickets are priced £19 for this fantastic event, which includes a glass of mulled wine and mince pie.

Then on Saturday 30 December, and following two standing ovations at last year’s show, Ireland’s leading country and gospel recording star, Trudi Lalor, returns by overwhelming demand to top the bill at this year’s ‘Christmas Country Showtime’. Trudi will share the stage with Stephen Smyth, Ireland’s most exciting and versatile entertainer; the true voice of Country, Joe Moore; the Scania143 Man himself, Boxcar Brian; star vocalist Olivia Douglas, and 13 year-old singing sensation Owen Mac who is taking the country music world by storm. The brilliant Country Harmony is the backing band and compere is Sean Wallace. Tickets are priced £17 each.
