You can't beat a good Irish funeral. Yeah it's sad...but ya know what'll help with that? Kind words,hang sangwiches, a glass of warm porter, milky tea, a bad ballad, a snog with that cousin you know you shouldn't fancy and a fight over who thought more of the dearly departed..
Thurs 6 & Fri 7 April, 8pm
From Prince and David Bowie to Leonard Cohen, the world lost some cherished pop culture figures in 2016. In this very special production, musicians and singers of Sligo join together in harmony to pay tribute to these incredible artists whose legacies will live on forever.
Highlights this Season
Sligo Children’s Book Festival enjoyed by lots of little ones!
Sligo Children's Book Festival took place from Thursday the 2nd to Sunday the 5th of March, with lots of book-related fun activities for children to enjoy. Events took place at the Hawk’s Well Theatre and The Model, kicking off with a Dr. Suess’ 113th Birthday Party at The Model which was opened by Sligo mayor, Marie Casserly.
Exciting New Shows added to Hawk’s Well Programme
We are delighted to announce details of some exciting new acts to appear at the Hawk's Well over the coming months. In May, we will have An Evening with Diarmuid Gavin. In June, American songstress Vonda Shepard (and star of TV series Ally McBeal) comes to perform complete with her full band, and in November, the one and only Ruby Wax is coming to the theatre to discuss her new best-selling book. We also welcome back Freddie White in July and in September, the much-loved Irish comedian David O’Doherty.
New Short-Term Residency Programme Announced
The Hawk’s Well Theatre are delighted to announce details of three short residencies for artists to take place at the theatre this year. Three four-week residencies have been awarded to three artists who will work on creative projects throughout the year. The artists involved are Sligo musicians Kieran Quinn and Oisín Mac Diarmada and actor Nichola MacEvilly.
St. Patrick’s Day Treat for Kids
This St. Patrick’s Day at 2pm we have a treat for children - Woofle! In this thirty minute show, singer-songwriter Dan Leith brings us lots of furry fun with Woofle – a show about one Dan and his dog with lots of silly songs. Inspired by Dan’s own four-legged best friend, Woofle is an irresistible tribute to the fun, playful and often slobbery unconditional love pets bring to our lives.
