CHRISTMAS PERFORMANCE: The Armagh Rhymers
Enjoy a colourful calendar custom this Christmas at the Museum with a very special day of performances by one of the most celebrated traditional music and theatre ensembles in Ireland.
The Armagh Rhymers will be performing throughout the day on Saturday, 17 December, in the museum galleries.
Through music, storytelling and drama, the Armagh Rhymers provide an experience that is entertaining, educational and cultural. Their colourful costumes evoke a sense of tradition and history and encapsulate the spirit of the ancient house visiting traditions of Ireland, where the kitchen floor became the stage.
Mummers were groups of actors who, over the 12 days of Christmas, performed an ancient form of theatre in verse with heroic characters from Ireland's past.
This is a free performance event taking place throughout the day in the main exhibition galleries from 10am to 4.30pm on Saturday, 17 December. No booking required.
