Learn more about Oskars for Lifeboat on November 15

An Oskars ceremony with a difference takes place in TLT, Drogheda on Sunday, March 3, 2018 in aid of Clogherhead Shannon Lifeboat appeal.

They are recruiting local actors now! Seven short films (10 minutes long) will be produced by local actors for the Oskars event. Previous acting experience is not necessary as supervision and production guidance will be provided by Kevin Rowe Events.

The short films will be based on scenes from well known movies and the finished films will be shown at the huge Oskars night in the T.L.T where friends and family and people from the community come together to support the Clogherhead Shannon Lifeboat Appeal.

If you are interested in taking part in this fun event or just want more information, please come along to a public meeting in Clogherhead Lifeboat Station on Wednesday 15 November at 8pm.
