To mark World Cancer Day (on 4 February 2019), and to raise funds for the Luxembourg Cancer Foundation, a Scottish/Irish Cèilidh is being organised on Saturday 2 February 2018 from 19:00 at the Centre Cultural Altrimenti (5 Avenue Marie-Therese, Luxembourg-ville).
The 2019 Dance Against Cancer Cèilidh is the third such event held in the Grand Duchy, with €2,051.60 raised in 2018 for the Luxembourg Cancer Foundation.
Following the success of previous events in 2017 and 2018, the traditional Irish band Kitchen Quartet will again provide the music, with a dance caller organising those on the dance floor who may not know the various dances. The Luxembourg Pipe Band will also perform.
A cash bar will be in operation. All money raised will be donated to the Cancer Foundation.
Tickets €12 from http://urquhart.lu/relais or at the door (subject to availability)
The Ireland Stand at this year’s International Bazar will host Luxembourg Comhaltas Step dancers accompanied by Kitchen Quartet on Sunday 9th December at 2pm.
Free entry. Hope to see you there!
The 9th annual British & Irish Film Season (BIFS) is taking place from 19 – 29 September in Luxembourg.
One of the films, “Camino Voyage” will be screened on Thursday 20 September at 20:30 at the Cinémathèque, with the director in attendance for a post-screening Q&A.
Synopsis: “A crew of two writers, two musicians, an artist and a stonemason build a naomhog – a Kerry currach – and embark on a journey that takes them from Dublin to Wexford, across the Irish Sea, along Devon and Cornwall, across the English Channel, along the north and west coasts of France, then the north and north-west coasts of Spain, to the Camino. This is a story of endurance, of adventure, of music and culture and, above all, achievement. The famous Camino de Santiago is a series of pilgrims’ paths leading to the shrine of the apostle St James in the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia in north-western Spain.”
The dialogue is partly “as Gaeilge” and there is quite a bit of traditional music performed in the film (which features Glen Hansard amongst others).
Tickets will go on sale from 5th September at http://www.luxembourg-ticket.lu
