Connecting the Irish on Tyneside

Cultural Society open night a great success.

The Tyneside Irish Cultural Society in Newcastle Upon Tyne extended a warm fàilte to all during an open evening on 8th September at the Tyneside Irish Centre.
The purpose of the evening was to introduce new members to the range of classes and events which the Cultural Society run and it was a chance for the tutors to ‘meet and greet’ over a free glass of wine and some nibbles. With an encouraging turnout, the director, Tony Corcoran, introduced the night and asked the tutors to say a few words about their classes.
Tony said “It was a great chance for people to get to know about what the Cultural Society does, it’s not just the classes and the Irish Festival, we have events throughout the year. We are putting together another programme of lectures following the successful ‘Road to the Rising’ series, and our outreach project ‘Raised on Songs and Stories’, which brings older members of the Irish community together outside of the city of Newcastle, has been really positive. There was a suggestion that we could start an Irish choir and we have had people sign up already.
Of course our 30th festival is not far away in mid October with some superb acts which I am really excited about. We have decided to have an international night for the free opening night this year on 13th October. Muhammad Al-Hussaini is coming from London, he sings in Irish, plays the fiddle and is an All-Ireland champion. We also have harpers Fiana Ni Chonnaill, from Tipperary, and Lizzie Asfolter from Brittany; plus singers and dancers from the Chinese and Hindi community on Tyneside”.
