Abbey Lane's raffers echoed with the sounds of laughter, music, rhyme and song as a full house enjoyed the great mix of talent
present at this month's Open Mic.
After the presentation to the prize winners of the first 30/3/30 poetry competition Rachel took over MC duties for the rest of the evening and introduced us to a great selection of artists from Carryduff, Dungannon, Magherlin, Rathfriland, Moira, Richhill, Jerrettspass, Cappagh and Armagh City surrounds. Our visitors where from as far as Banbridge, Belfast and America. We must be doing something right!
As promised we had Musicians, poets, singers, storytellers,comedian, spoken word poet and a yarn spinner. We had a raffle! And all this for £5... We had a Ball. Thank you to all who managed to get in and who supported the artists with such warmth and encouragement.
The artists were:
Adam Trotter, John Henderson, StevieC, Harry Perrin, Lily Rose Conway, Matthew, Theo Sinton,John McAndrew, Mark Brownlee, Cathy Carson,Bridie Donaghy, Ellen McKenna, Molly, Jay Rafferty and Dymphna .
Thanks to all the ATG members who helped in any way setting up, raffle tickets etc and clearing the space for the Youth Group session on Sat morning.
We are back again on 31st March with results of our monthly poetry competition and what im sure will be another great night's entertainment at the Open Mic in Abbey Lane Theatre Armagh. 'The Capital of Talent'
