As well as our usual church events throughout the Autumn, we're delighted to be taking part in ‘An Evening of Ulster Scots Music and Crack’ which is part of Newtownards Ulster-Scots Festival Week. Venue is the Londonderry Room in the Old Town Hall Newtownards.
• Hosted by Newtownards man David Anderson MVO, MBE. • Also performing will be Lord Londonderry’s Own CLB Band • Wilbert Magill (local poet, writer, accordion player and radio star!) • Newtownards Orange Male Voice Choir • There will also be a talk on Asha Kiran School in India by Billy Curry. (a retiring offering will be collected in aid of the school).
Entry is £6.00 per person, pay at the door (no tickets). There will be light refreshments and, if you're lucky, you might even get to see the old jail cell (see photo below) where many a troublesome Ulster-Scot has been held over the years!
