The Neon Wake

Thu 29th October - Sun 1st November
All Day


As the old Town Hall crosses ‘The Thin Veil’, the occasion will be marked with a 72-hour ‘Neon Wake’, running from Thursday, 29th at 9pm until Sunday evening, 1 November.

The Front Room of the Townhall Arts Space will be transformed into a Irish scullery where a transparent, neon coffin will be suspended as the focal point for storytelling, recitals, music sessions, and a whole range of performance from local and international artists, celebrating life and death. The wake performances will continue round the clock for 72 hours, celebrating the past life of the Townhall.
