Liam Lawton’s Nenagh Concert this Saturday, 25th May
Liam Lawton brings his show of spiritual and inspirational music to Nenagh Arts Centre on this Saturday the 25th May.
During a twenty year career of composing and arranging, Lawton has secured a niche with his own brand of sacred music, which has become repertoire for choirs and soloists throughout the world. Song and story are vital ingredients in the compositions and performances of Liam Lawton. One cannot exist without the other and leads to a unique live experience in concert. He says: “I am surrounded by a great team on stage and off who make music making a real blessing. God has indeed blessed me”!

The magical ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’ this Thursday at Nenagh Arts Centre
The American film ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’, already regarded as a classic movie about childhood, comes to Nenagh Arts Centre on this Thursday May 23rd.
Cut off from the rest of the world by a sprawling levee, a swamp community struggles to survive. Hushpuppy, a six-year-old girl exists on the brink of orphanhood. Buoyed by childish optimism and an extraordinary imagination, she believes that the natural world is in balance with the universe until a fierce storm changes her reality. Desperate to repair her world in order to save her ailing father and sinking home, this tiny hero must learn to survive unstoppable catastrophes of epic proportions.
Quvenzhané Wallis, at age 9, became the youngest Best Actress Oscar nominee in history for her role as Hushpuppy. The New York Times said the film was a “blast of sheer, improbable joy, a boisterous, thrilling action movie with a protagonist who can hold her own.”
This amazing film proportions. -- (C) Fox Searchlightscreens at 8 p.m. on Thursday 23rd May in the Arts Centre on Banba Square. Tickets are €7 on the door or online at www.nenagharts.com. Go to the Nenagh Arts Centre’s Facebook page to get a special offer on tickets.
