Lively season ahead in Banteer

Sheila Fitzgerald

With long winter evenings just around the corner, now is the time to check out some of the great entertainment on offer across North Cork.

Locally, the Glen Theatre in Banteer has a jam packed autumn winter schedule to suit all tastes. Music fans will be spoiled for choice with headline acts like Johnny McEvoy, Eleanor Shanley and Gerry Guthrie taking to the stage. 

On this Saturday night, Freemount Songstress Elle Marie O' Dwyer and her friend Grace Foley, Killarney, will appear in Concert.

Comedy lovers can look forward to Brendan Grace and the hugely popular Comedy Snaps, while those who savour great drama can sit back and enjoy Jon Kenny and Mary McEvoy in a production of John B Keane's 'The Match Maker'. 

Banteer Drama Group will serve up their own inimitable take on 'Life, The Gift That Keeps on Giving' on October 6, 7, and 14, and they are back again at the end of October with another JB Keane classic, 'Sive'. 

International acts also grace the stage at the Glen Theatre and on Sunday, September 23 a wonderful night of bluegrass and gospel music is promised courtesy of Midnight Run from Tennessee.
