The forthcoming concert, often referred to as the official launch of the Christmas season in Clonmel, has grown in popularity and entertainment value over the years and the constant updating of lighting and sound quality has resulted in a show of a very high professional standard.

Tickets are available from the usual outlets - Marian’s, O’Connell Street; Better by Nature, Market Place and the Parish Shop, Ss Peter and Paul’s, priced at €15 each. The concert will commence at 8pm sharp and tickets will also be available at the door.
