The Big, Hairy, Audacious New Year’s Eve Masquerade Ball!

Thu 31st December
All Day

Flushing ‘Auld Lang Syne’, Jools Holland, and haggis straight down the hootenanny this December 31st, Townhall Cavan Arts Space will ring in 2016 in a delightfully chaotic, creative and original fashion, with the ‘Big, Hairy, Audacious New Year’s Eve Ball’.

An outrageous departure from the annual anti-climax, this alternative masquerade ball will delight and excite, with live music varying from reggae to roots to rock, in every room of this venerable building, and theatrical performances, quirky surprises and good times abounding.

This unique alternative New Year’s celebration will bring together the finest musicians and performers around to unceremoniously kick 2015 out of the bed and make room for 2016 in a celebratory carnival atmosphere fizzing with creative energy.

While the traditional New Year’s Eve countdown has grown so tired we might as well be counting sheep, The Big, Hairy, Audacious New year’s Eve Ball will feature a countdown so big, so ridiculous and so over-the-top that you will be guaranteed to enter the coming year in a bewildered, delirious daze.

“We want people to say, ‘That was too much’. That’s the ambition!” says Philip Doherty, acclaimed playwright and one of the four Townhall Cavan creative directors orchestrating this hairy, hedonistic Hogmanay masquerade. Anyone who was lucky enough to witness the ‘Ship of Fools’ spectacular devised by these four creative renegades at Halloween will know that this is no idle promise.

This New Year’s Eve, Times Square is for squares; Townhall Cavan is the only place to be. Join us on a night for spirits to be lifted, for boys and girls to be shifted and drinks to be gifted at the Big, Hairy, Audacious New Year’s Eve Ball!
