BELFAST singer Brian Kennedy has been announced as just one of the major acts to play the Alley Arts and Conference Centre, Strabane.
www.strabanedc.org.uk/events , or by contacting the Box Office on 028 71 384 444.
The award winning arts centre, supported by RE/MAX will play host to the likes of singer Dominic Kirwin and comedian Colin Murphy as well as the Belfast-born Kennedy, who will be playing as part of his five month UK tour.
Chairman of the Strabane Borough Council Gerard Foley has welcomed the new season of entertainment as a major pull for a UK-wide audience to the Strabane area.
He said: â€œThe award-winning theatre, art gallery and tourism information centre has made an incredible impact on the Tyrone and Donegal area since it opened its doors in March, introducing a whole new audience to performing and visual art, in addition to welcoming visitors from across the UK, Ireland and overseas to Strabane.â€
The Alley Theatre is sponsored by a number of local businesses, which has helped local artists and art projects to work alongside the world-renowned names the centre has come to attract.
Gerard Foley said: â€œStrabane District Council is delighted to hear we will have visiting performers and artists including Brian Kennedy, Neil Delamere, Belfast Circus, Young-Cohoon Park, Ballet Ireland, The Panto Company with Robinson Crusoe, Colin Murphy and Nuala McKeever this autumn.
â€œWe are extremely happy to see the venue being used to its maximum capacity by local and national businesses, community groups, and charities.â€
