Skerries Soundwaves Launch 2016

Posted on

Huge thank you to all who came to help us kick off Soundwaves 2016 in style last night! I’m sure everyone will agree it was a brilliant night and has really helped set the tone and atmosphere for the rest of the festival.
A huge thank you goes to our brilliant guest speaker Morgan Llewylen who spoke so passionately about all things artistic.
Our entertainment on the night was provided by the fantastic poet/ rapper John Cummins who has the whole audience in awe of his amazingly talented performance. We look forward to seeing more of John on Sunday 25th at our Story Telling event in Holmpatrick School from 1-4pm. Anyone who missed last night make sure to attend as you do not want to miss this unique performance.
A massive thank you also Deirdre Glenfield, who has put so much work into the Artwaves exhibition around the town and spoke about it last night. A huge effort has been put in this year so do your best not to miss out. More details can be found on our website
