Mark Friday May 10 in the diary for a very special fundraising table quiz at The Source Arts Centre in Thurles, to help young people get involved in the centre’s annual arts initiative. The Source Youth Arts Programme is now in its eighth successful year and is committed to ensuring access to professional artists and arts practice for young people in the locality in conjunction with Tipperary Regional Youth Services.
In July a group of 11-17 year olds will have the opportunity to take part in a week’s worth of fun and making new friends whilst working with professional theatre makers, writers and designers to create a live performance event for family and friends. The show will be based on the magical stories of Aladdin, The Voyages of Sinbad and Ali Baba. This is an incredible opportunity for local young people to work with professionals in a professional setting. In order to keep this 7 day project accessible to all, The Source Arts Centre is undertaking a fundraising drive over the next few weeks to ensure that young people who apply for subsidised places on The Source Youth Arts Programme are not disappointed.
So, get a gang together for the table quiz and enjoy some trivia with plenty of laughs and entertainment promised. The quiz will take place in The Source Bar which will be serving wine and beverages on the night. Quizmaster is Tom Noone, who is no stranger to the table quiz circuit and has chaired plenty of successful and enjoyable quiz nights over the years. Local band Strings & Things will finish the night on a high as they roll out their trad/rock spin on classic hits. This band is on the tip of everyone’s tongues at the moment as their debut performance over Easter at the Pieta House fundraiser at The Abbey Inn in Holycross was a roaring success. A team of four costs only €20 and will make a difference to one local young person’s summer well spent.
When: Friday May 10
Where: The Source Arts Centre Bar
Time: 8.30pm until late
