What's On: Follow your arrow to Game of Thrones set
Jacqueline McGonigle of whatsonni.com shares her pick of family events this week across Northern Ireland
This Saturday step into Winterfell for the Game Of Thrones Archery Experience. Take aim where young Bran was taught archery by Jon Snow in the very place where the Bafa award winning TV show was filmed – in the courtyard aka ‘Winterfell’. Stand in the recreated Game of Thrones archery film set, dress in a Game Of Thrones-like costume to look the part and get ready to take aim. Suitable for eight years+ for an open Bran session (50 mins) and four years+ for a private Ned session (1hr). (Under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult).
The Market Place Theatre Armagh is the venue this Friday for ‘And Finally Phil Collins’. Recognised throughout the industry as the market leaders and definitive Phil Collins and Genesis tribute show, and now in their eighth year together this truly amazing eleven-piece band which includes the ‘And Finally Horns’ faithfully re-create all the classic hits from the Phil Collins and Genesis timeless back catalogue.
Enjoy some Beer, Cider and Crisps this Saturday at Castle Archdale. Not just any old beer and cider and not just any old crisps. As part of the NI Year of Food and Drink, Brewing and Distilling month,
MacIvors’ Cider and Pokertree Brewing Company will offer tasting of their
respective products and Mr Tayto will be handing out crisps all round.
The Brass Band League Championships take place this Saturday at the Alley Theatre Strabane. More than 21 bands are set to perform on stage, in four section groups. Enjoy the spring sunshine and join hundreds of bandsmen and
women enjoying their now annual festival day in Strabane in the award-winning Alley. A must see for all lovers of brass music.
See Philomena Begley with Ray Lynam this Thursday at the Millennium Forum.
