Arklow's Asgard II

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2019:  REMEMBERING ASGARD II  The Asgard II brigantine, the Irish national training vessel, built here upon the banks of the River Avoca by Jack Tyrrell Shipyard - a name synonymous with the town down through the years, and an incredible source of Arklow pride until a fateful evening when she sank in the Bay of Biscay, back in 2008.  Still, her name looms large, and of course, our very own theatre is named in her honour.  On this evening we recall memories from those who knew the Asgard best, reliving the highs and the obvious low.  Further details to follow, closer to the time.


THURSDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2019:  THE MOXIE STRINGS  Hailed over in the United States of America by The Grand Rapids Press as “top-notch, instrumental wizardry,” The Moxie Strings offer listeners the unique opportunity to experience some of the world’s best- known instruments through a young, progressive lens. Diana Ladio and Alison Lynn hold Bachelor of Music degrees in music performance and music education, which have given each the technical foundation to explore the limits of her instrument and helped the group build a reputation for musical excellence. Alison performs on a newly-invented, electric cello, and Diana on a contemporary 5-string violin. Both use a variety of audio effects pedals. The Moxie Strings compose the majority of their pieces and arrange melodies from many countries, resulting in a genre-blurring blend of ear-catching, mainstream melodies and foot-stomping, rock-influenced rhythms. The band’s polished, high-energy show continues to redefine strings’ role in contemporary music. The two often join forces with dynamic percussionists to create an even livelier sound for larger venues.  Further details to follow, closer to the time.



It is a unique, charming venue with a fabulous sound system.

We are located above Kenny's of the Harbour Bar, Lower Main Street in Arklow.

35 Lower Main Street Y14K7W8
