REMEMBERING THE Armada
21st-23rd SEPTEMBER 2018
Cannon In Sea - the main event
Every year we try something different as part of 'Remembering the Armada' and 2018 will be no different. 'Cannon in Sea' is a specially commissioned production which derives its inspiration from the discovery in 2015 of 9 Spanish Armada cannon at Streedagh Beach in Sligo.
This production will take place in the unique surroundings of the Old Coastguard Station overlooking Streedagh Beach itself, and will feature an international ensemble of musicians, a theatrical dimension, film, narration, food, song and storytelling which will draw on the rich story of the Armada for inspiration.
Performances on both Friday and Saturday 8pm - booking advised.
