As the summer season kicks off, there's some great entertainment on the way at the Ardhowen Theatre in Enniskillen this June.

Get ready for a high-energy, hilariously funny comedy show featuring 90s Disco classics and iconic songs from Dirty Dancing with 'Nobody Puts Bernie In A Corner'!

Join Bernie Jones on her crazy 'Dirty Dancing'-themed hen party, where you’re in for a wild night of fun and laughter – but will she make it down the aisle, or will she discover her real-life Johnny Castle?

Find out tonight (Thursday, June 1) at 8pm.

Ulster Youth Opera offer a fantastic opportunity for young performers to work with professional singers, directors and pianists to build vocal, acting and movement skills while learning about this amazing art form.

No music reading ability or singing grades are required – just join in and enjoy the magical world of opera! Sessions run at the Ardhowen today (Thursday, June 1) at 5pm for children aged between eight to 13, and at 7pm for those aged between 14 to 18.

The Ardhowen Theatre will be hosting an audiovisual spectacular featuring hundreds of images, new research and incredible songs tomorrow (Friday, June 2) at 8pm, with 'The Murder of Wolfe Tone'.

Historical entertainer Paddy Cullivan unravels the secrets and lies around the mysterious death of Theobald Wolfe Tone, the founding father of Irish Republicanism.

Note that there is an age restriction of 12 years and over for this show.

Fermanagh Art Club (FAC) are providing a fantastic opportunity for seven- to 14-year-olds, with their programmed event, 'Paint a Lough Erne Landscape with FAC'.

There will be two sessions running on Saturday, June 3, from 10am to noon, and from 1.30pm to 3pm.

All materials are supplied and each child will leave with their very own painting.

Guided by professional artist and art teacher Gail Turner, the young artists will learn a range of painting techniques that will help build skills in the medium of acrylics.

These two-hour tutorial workshops will help children to develop a newfound self-confidence, enabling them to express their creativity and nurture their talent.

On Friday, June 9, MOBO-nominated drummer/composer David Lyttle presents up-and-coming NI Jazz talent, with Jazzlife featuring David Lyttle and Jazz Juniors.

David is the artistic director of Jazzlife Alliance, an Arts Council of Northern Ireland-funded talent organisation which mentors gifted young musicians and launched the innovative Jazz Juniors scheme for under-18s in 2021.

His return to the Ardhowen Theatre will see him perform alongside many of these young talents; having previously worked with Jazz icons from Joe Lovano to Dave Liebman to Kurt Rosenwinkel and collaborated in Hip-Hop with Talib Kweli and Spoken Word with Liam Neeson.

On Saturday, June 10, join the Ardhowen in celebrating one of the greatest sitcoms ever made, as the theatre hosts 'Celebration of Father Ted' with Joe Rooney.

This will be a hosted screening of a classic Ted episode, a Q&A, a sandwich-making session, an all-inclusive ‘Lovely Girls Competition’, and a dancing priests competition – and the evening wouldn’t be complete without a sing-along to 'My Lovely Horse'!

Come and meet Joe and immerse yourself in the very silly delights of Father Ted – ah, go on, go on, go on. Go on!

Note that the show contains strong language, and is suitable for those aged 15-years and over.
