Nathan’s “Summer Spectacular Show”, Thursday 29th August at 8 p.m.
Ireland’s hottest act, Nathan Carter returns for one night only to his favourite venue. Just back from his completely sold out British Tour Nathan is raring to go in Ireland again. It has been another wonder year with his 5th studio Album “Born” going straight to Number One on its release in September last, making it his 5th album to debut at the top of the charts.
He is an exciting feature on the UK Country scence, and once again tops the Irish charts with his fifth album ‘Where I Wanna Be’ which features his unique blend of Celtic, country and pop! Not bad for the cherubic former head choir boy who sang for Pope John Paul II in Rome.
So as Nathan himself says “I was born for the road”, come along and share the experience with him! Nathan promises A must-see show, with his amazing band. “We will make it an unforgettable night for all our fans”.

A Line of O’Kane, Friday 30th August at 8 p.m.
Catch Deidre O’Kane’s brand new stand up show, A Line of O’Kane. Fresh from a standing ovation-worthy set at All Together Now’s comedy stage, Deirdre O’Kane is itching to get back to Waterford. “I hadn’t been in ages and festival trip reminded me how much I love playing here. Waterford audiences are the best plus I didn’t get a chance to pick up my favourite local delicacy so I’m planning on getting in early on the 30th so I don’t miss out on my traditional blaa this time around.
One of the country’s favourite comics, Deirdre has really hit her stride recently following a return to stand-up comedy in 2017; charting her glittering turn as a finalist on Dancing with the Stars, the sell out new show has sold out across the country and is a straight-talking look at twelve frantic months in the life of this tango-tripping, family-minding, telly-making, house-moving, comedy dynamo.

Jon Kenny becomes the Crowman, Saturday 31st August at 8 p.m.
Jon Kenny, of D’Unbelievables fame, is touring with a new play’ Crowman’ . Written and directed by north-Cork writer Katie Holly, the play received standing ovations every night during its inaugural run in Cork Midsummer festival last year.
The main character of Crowman is Dan Lonergan. The play is an account of the hilarious characters that inhabit his life on a daily basis and a love story that never was.
Poignant and comic, Kenny carries the audience on a roller-coaster ride from his childhood to middle age, from the hurling pitch to the pub and from one uproariously funny character to the other.
It is about lost love and the sense of belonging and not belonging in a small community. Most of all it is about the humanity and decency of the local characters found in every rural village and town in Ireland.
‘Set in a sparsely decorated kitchen, this intimate one-man show starring Jon Kenny (D’Unbelievables) feels like a window into the soul of a lonely bachelor, Dan. A crow-hating man who noisily tries to shoo the blighted birds away, Dan measures out his life by the number of funerals he has to attend every week. They are social occasions with the added bonus of refreshments….. Kenny is brilliant in the role, conveying the gamut of emotions. Katie Holly’s script is strong, conjuring up a life of quiet desperation.’(Irish Examiner).
