Valentines Jazz at Johnstown

Book Tickets Here

Join us for Valentines at Jazz at Johnstown on February 12, an evening when timeless classics by Sharon Clancy and the Chris Colloton Trio intertwine to transport you into a world of sweet and sophisticated romance.

Why does live jazz lend itself so perfectly to a celebration of love? Two reasons: the Chris Colloton Trio, following two sold-out concerts at Johnstown Castle in October and December, is ceaselessly inventive, passionate and rich. Is there a better description of true love?

And Sharon Clancy’s voice – intimate and romantic, swinging and caressive – is beautifully nuanced but with a broad range all of her own. There is nothing quite like Jazz at Johnstown to patch over the rough spots after the recent lifting of public health restrictions. See you on February 12!

NOTE: Event will run inline with any public health guidelines at the time.

Start time: 8pm

Location: Johnstown Castle Visitor Centre

€20.00 per person.

New Exhibition: Pioneering Wexford Women

The Irish Agricultural Museum will house an exhibition dedicated to the Wexford women selected to leave workhouses during the Great Irish Famine and make the long and arduous journey to begin new lives in South Africa.

Matt Wheeler, Museum Curator, said, “This exhibition is particularly ideal for schools and families as the young girls were only teenagers and their story is a unique way to address the story of the Great Famine and their courage to escape their terrible circumstances to forge a new life half way around the world.”

Exhibition is included in admission price. For more information please click here

 

Exhibition: Toy Story – Miniature Motors by Matchbox, Corgi & Dinky

An exciting exhibition of over 600 model cars. The collection is complemented by a fascinating collection of vintage motoring memorabilia, garage pumps and equipment from the Museum’s extensive collection of transport-related artefacts, long disappeared from forecourts, and other objects from a time when a car journey was still an adventure.

Open Daily in the Irish Agricultural Museum. Included in general admission price. Click for more information
