Celebrate International Day of Peace at the Burnavon Theatre


To help celebrate International Day of Peace, Mid Ulster District Council in partnership with the Mid Ulster Clergy Forum will host a concert at the Burnavon, Cookstown.

The Peace Concert will take place at 7.30pm on Tuesday 19 September 2017 at the Burnavon.

Featuring a diverse range of performers and local youth talent from throughout the Mid Ulster region, this concert running for the second year, will mark an important contribution to the global peace celebrations.

The audience will enjoy performances from the Traditional Music in Schools group with Donald Canavan, Ulster Scots Juvenile Pipe Band and Cookstown Youth Choir, to name a few.
