Listowel, Town Square, Saturday, 18th December, 12 to 6pm
Following the success of the summer Anseo Kerry Live and Local Music and Entertainment, Anseo Kerry Live + Local Outdoor Shows are to return the weekend before Christmas. The Anseo Christmas Special Show brings music, song and festive craic to the live stage with a great line up of Kerry bands, singers and entertainers. Running from 12-6, in Listowel Town Square, this show will be fun and free and there’s something for all the family.
These ANSEO Kerry Shows are supported and funded by the Local Live Performance Programming Scheme from Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport & Media in association with Kerry County Council. According to Cllr. Jimmy Moloney, Mayor of Kerry, ‘The Local Live Performance Scheme is really important for the county’s artists as it enables them to get back on stage and perform and do what they do best, in front of a live audience. Not only that, but these Anseo Kerry Christmas Specials will bring festive fun to the town centres, who have been busy putting up Christmas lights and trees. Now we have these special Christmas outdoor concerts which will lift spirits and here’s hoping for plenty of sing-alongs and cheer!’
