Goldilocks and the Three Bears


Miriam Lambert, from the well-known Lambert family of puppeteers, is delighted to present “Goldilocks and the Three Bears”, a classic story she brings to life herself in a unique style of puppetry.

Peek and Boo – her signature characters – open the performance, using their international language of movement and slapstick comedy to guide the children to the tale of a little girl who pays a visit to the home of the adorable baby bear!


This Sunday, June 23th in the Town Hall Theatre, at 14 h.

Tickets are 8 euros or 28 for a Family Ticket (4 people)

Tales from Galway


We have had enough cinema lately, so let’s go to the theatre this week, especially when this saturday tickets are 6 or 8 euros in the Town Hall Theatre to see the new version of Tales from Galway.

Tales of Galway is a devised play arising from a series of reminiscing workshops involving a wide variety of older Galway residents. Workshop participants were encouraged to delve into their past and explore their youthful experience of growing up in Galway. The result is a uniquely Galwegian theatrical event.

The stories are pull together into a script with the main story of two girls from Bohermore, Margaret and Mary who are friends from the 1950’s. One of them has to go to England and the friendship continues with their letters. In those letters we can hear the real stories of the people from the workshops.

The play was on stage last year, but now the play continues the story until the 1990’s, so we go from the ballroom of Seapoint to the Nightclub life style. It is a perfect opportunity to learn how life has changed in Galway, but it probably remains exactly the same, friends, love, family and this joy of life so present in Ireland.

Tales of Galway is at the Town Hall on Saturday June 1 at 8pm.

Tickets are €8/6 and available from the Town Hall on 091 – 569777


Bits and Bobs

There’s so much going on in Spring and Summer in Galway that we can’t either focus our reviews in one thing only and miss the rest or write a huge review about every event.

So sometimes you’ll find a little melting pot which gathers all that we find interesting and worth to see or visit. That’s not an easy job to do, as nothing is lacking any interest from our point of view.

This week, some of the cultural events we found around the city…choose the one you like most!

Oliver Reed, my life story

The youngest ones will know him for his last play in Gladiator in which filming died, leaving a long and productive career, including Women in Love, one of the earliest films to show a masculine nude, the Dicken’s classic adaptation Oliver! Or the controversial The Devils. The London actor could have been chosen to play James Bond by her good looking features and presence but was rejected by her bad reputation and issues with alcohol.


Some of his numerous anecdotes and drunken appereances will be revisited by Rob Crouch’s in OLIVER REED, WILD LIFE and unsuprisingly the play is set in a pub in Malta, where he died of a heart attack. Not being easy for Crouch being for around 90 minutes alone on stage playing either the Reed actor, the Reed drunk or the Reed sober, it  has been a completely success since its opening in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where Rob Crouch obteined very positive reviews.


This time it’s your chance to have your own opinion, if you still have a gap in your busy agenda for this week which we know is very tight…
