There are plenty of exciting events happening at the Ardhowen Theatre in the coming weeks with workshops, local drama and a special production just in time for the upcoming half-term holidays. 

The Ulster Touring Youth Opera Workshops continue on Thursday, February 8, at 5pm and 7pm.

If you love singing, acting, and are aged 8-18, why not join Ulster Youth Opera?

Work with professional singers, directors and pianists to build vocal, acting and movement skills while learning about the art form.

No music reading ability or singing grades are required – just join in and enjoy the magical world of opera.

Enniskillen Amateur Dramatic Society (EADS) are excited to bring their production of ‘Blood Wedding’ to the Ardhowen for three days; running from Thursday, February 8 to Saturday, February 10, at 8pm.

The drama is set in a village where tradition, blood ties and the land are sacred.

An unnamed bride runs away from her wedding reception with her married former suitor, Leonardo.

The bridegroom, compelled by honour, leads the immediate chase with the inevitable outcome, leaving the bereaved women to mourn their loss.

Blood Wedding shows EADS’ talented players turning their hand to drama with ease, and is sure to captivate audiences.

Next week, Fermanagh Film Club are presenting the highly-acclaimed 'Past Lives' on February 14. 

Nora and Hae Sung – once classmates at a primary school in Seoul – have their deep friendship ended abruptly when Nora’s family emigrates to Canada.

Some two decades later, they meet again in New York, and the film explores their connection, and the complexities of life.

With spellbinding performances from Greta Lee, Teo Yoo, and John Magaro, it brims with compassion for how complicated the human condition can be.

On Thursday, February 15 at 2:30pm, the 50th-anniversary production of 'There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly' arrives at the Ardhowen, just in time for the half-term break

Written by Steven Lee, The People’s Theatre Company will bring the nursery rhyme to life just in time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Pam Adams' best-selling book.

This magical retelling of There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly is sure to surprise and delight children and nostalgic adults in equal measure. (Note: pyrotechnics will be used during this performance.)
