'Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire' , A Festive Fusion of Music Song and Christmas Cheer, will take place again this year, on Thursday the 21st of December at 7pm in the GP Area at Glenamaddy Community School.  it has proved to be a wonderful start to the Christmas for all in previous years and this year proves to be another cracker and a great Christmas night out for all the family.

No booking necessary, charge on the night at the door, €5 for adults and €2 for children and there will be complimentary refreshments of mulled wine, hot chocoate and mince pies on the night.
