We carefully chose the greatest hits that people love and remember and even if you’re not a die-hard Dolly fan you’ll certainly catch yourself toe tapping at some point throughout the night.”The Dolly Show has quickly become one of Northern Ireland’s best known tribute acts, with two dazzling costume changes on the night, a four-piece band and the Dolly Birds backing singers.

General Manager at the Ballygally Castle, Norman McBride added: “We are thrilled to be able to host this amazing event here at the Castle. Ticket sales have been in such a high demand that we have added a further date on for Saturday January 31, and one of our sister hotels, the Everglades Hotel in the City of Derry, will also be hosting the Dolly Show on Friday January 2.”
