We give local audiences and visitors the opportunity to enjoy the very best local, national and international arts and entertainment events.

Boasting a 383 capacity auditorium and one of the largest theatre stages in Ireland, we are a state of the art facility committed to presenting the best in drama, comedy, music and much, much more.

We maintain a busy programme of community and outreach events including regular drama classes for children, a youth theatre for young people as well as an exciting summer programme of performing arts for children and young people.
