“Wireless Mystery Theatre transports the audience back to the Golden Age of radio, to be AWED! and AMAZED! as they present radio plays live on stage. You are offered a peek through the studio’s perspex glass to watch the live music, the hand-cranked sound effects, the ‘radio personalities,’ and the old-time commercials all as they happen”
On Sunday 25th March at 2:30pm The Wireless Mystery Theatre company perform TITANIC VOICES at Coleraine Library … the show “dramatically recreates the wireless communications on the night the Titanic sank, using both the Titanic logs and those of ships searching for the doomed liner.“
(Admission is free)
(Tickets are also now on sale for The Wireless Room at Belfast City Hall)
Now for something a bit more futuristic …

It consists of seven parallel beams of high specification laser light, representing the spectrum of the traditional seven colours of the rainbow, and is designed to be projected across large open sites, particularly densely populated areas. With the projection, the artist intends to encompass geographical and social diversity in its reach and symbolise hope.
Presented by amino for the first time in the UK Global Rainbow opens the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad year in three regions of the UK: north east and north west England, and Northern Ireland … Starting on 14 March and ending on St Patrick’s Day, 17 March, the rainbow is being projected from the base of the landmark site of Scrabo Tower. For four nights, it passes over Newtownards, from where it follows the picturesque eastern shore of Strangford Lough and on, over the Ards Peninsula …”

Come join in this celebration of the city that built the Titanic and the creative industry of today, built on the industrial foundations of yesteryear!

Experience music in the round, as a group of musicians surround the audience and improvise a full set. Reviews have been fantastic.
