Big screen lovers
THERE is nothing like Valentine’s night to polarise the love/ hate axis of this date, and that calendar fixture is upon us again. This year’s love is celebrated on Wednesday February 14 and Millennium Film Club has again partnered with Hook&Ladder to present an alternative offer.
The meal and movie deal will feature the film ‘Dirty Dancing’ at 9pm in Moylish, preceded by a three course meal at the Sarsfield Street restaurant from 7pm on.
Last year, the night sold out with ‘Casablanca’ playing on the big screen in LIT’s Millennium Theatre. Book on the restaurant’s website www.hookandladder.ie at €25 per head.
Orchestral Trapeze in St Mary’s Cathedral
FIDGET Feet’s acrobatic troupe will be the aerial stars at Irish Chamber Orchestra’s next concert, taking place under the vaulted high of St Mary’s Cathedral. The concert date is romantic, Thursday February 15 at 8pm, for the programme grouped under the theme and indeed, the music of ‘Trapeze’.
Jorg Widman on clarinet is principal conductor and Diego Chenna is soloist on bassoon.
Look forward to music from Mozart, Strauss, Mendelsohnn as rearranged by Widmann, and the title piece ‘Trapeze’ from Prokofiev. Book on website www.irishchamberochestra.com
Joanna Trollope in conversation
LIME Tree Theatre will host Joanna Trollope’s first visit to Limerick on February 14 for a special evening of readings and revelation.
The British novelist and historian, married and divorced twice, will read from her latest, ‘An Unsuitable Match’. Trollope will talk about her influences and writing life with presenter Liz Nolan of RTE lyric FM.
“Call it an alternative Valentine’s Night Out,” suggests Lime Tree’s Gill Fenton of this latest in their ‘in conversation’ series. “This novel looks at the complicated business of love and factors in the added messiness of love, second time around.
“In one of only two appearances in Ireland this year, Limerick audiences will hear lots of pithy insights from one of the world’s favourite authors”.
Save the date for 8pm this Feb 14, booking on www.limetreetheatre.ie
