Nenagh Arts Centre has announced a new programme of events for spring 2014.

Nenagh Arts Centre returns in January with the start of its new film programme which features an on-going season of classic films such as ‘Battleship Potemkin’ as well as films of more recent interest like the Wikileaks story ‘We Steal Secrets’ and the French film ‘Renoir’.

Shows by up-and-coming bands Animal Beats, Spook of the Thirteenth Lock and Moscow Metro are part of a focus on new Irish music and each of these groups will perform alongside local acts including Futurism and Burn This Promise.

The centre also presents the talented Eleanor McEvoy performing in early March.

In theatre the new Nenagh Players show ‘The Outgoing Tide’ goes on stage in late February. This latest production from the Nenagh Players will be directed by Jenny Bracken and star Donal Bray, Kevin Walsh and Niamh Hogan.

The Nenagh Players intend to take this production on the All-Ireland fextival circuit.

Meanwhile the much-lauded ‘Tom Crean - Antarctic Explorer’ performed by Aidan Dooley features at Nenagh Arts Centre on February 16th next.

Nenagh Arts Centre is also hosting a portrait painting day in early February to give established and budding artists the chance to get some time working on their portrait skills.

Manager Brendan Maher told the Tipperary Star: “We had a great year in 2013 and we are looking to develop certain areas of the programme, especially in music and theatre.

“So, if there are any local acts or performers interested in doing projects with us we would be delighted to meet with them.

“We’ve also got a full programme of classes and groups meeting in the centre, so there is always the opportunity to develop new skills.

“All the information is in our new programme”.

The brochure for the spring programme of events is now online ( and tickets for all events can be booked through the site or by calling Nenagh Arts Centre on 067 34400.
