The Market Place Theatre in Armagh is set to present another of its Family Super Saturdays on Saturday September, 17 this time with the tale of ‘Gruff’. Three hungry Billy Goats, two eyes as big as saucers, one rickety-rackety Bridge.

This much loved fairy-tale is brought to life with a pinch of Banyan magic, puppetry, storytelling and original music.

As ever, the Family Super Saturday will include a post-show hour of fun activities including themed craft workshops, face painting, balloon modelling and fancy dress competition with prizes for Best Dressed Boy and Girl. Super Saturdays are recommended for age 4+. Tickets are priced £6.

Why not treat a loved one to a night of great music and food at our popular Jazz Supper Club on Friday September 23. Taking centre stage will be the hugely popular Gay McIntyre & John Leighton Trio. Tickets are £12.50 for the performance only and £21 for the performance and supper.

Irish star Al Porter, as seen on BBC’s ‘Live At The Apollo’, follows up his hugely successful Edinburgh debut with a brand new show full of cheekiness, honesty and sparkling showmanship on Saturday September 24. Tickets are £16.

Derry-born Ruth McGinley quickly became a young star of classical music when she won the piano final of the ‘BBC Young Musician Of The Year’ competition in 1994. The concert programme will include works from Ruth’s new album by Debussy, Piazzolla, Rachmaninoff and Philip Glass. Tickets for the concert on Saturday September 24 are £15 or £13 [conc].

Tickets for all performances can be booked through the Box Office on 3752 1821, or online at
