Alley Theatre marks 15th anniversary with comprehensive Spring programme

11 February 2022
The Alley Theatre Spring programme is back bigger and better than ever before as the Strabane Theatre celebrates its 15th anniversary with a comprehensive programme of events and shows.
The Covid 19 pandemic means it has been two years since The Alley produced a Spring programme but it is now returning with a packed schedule of comedy, music, drama, exhibitions and shows that are sure to have something for all ages and tastes.
The programme is full of local talent such as Emer Maguire, Sorry For Your Loss, Give My Head Peace, Orange is the New Green, Brian Hassan and Gerard Bradley and special guests to name just a few.  
The Alley will also be hosting festivals including the 'NI Science Festival at the end of February,  Strabane Drama Festival in March and the Strabane Unplugged Revisited Festival in April.
There will be exhibitions from the Northern Ireland Photographic Association Annual Exhibition, Boz Mugabe and the Strabane Unplugged Revisited and the Alley will also be taking part in Derry City and Strabane District Council's wider festival and events programme, including the Jazz Festival and St Patrick's Day.
There are also shows specifically aimed at children, including 'Fartology' as part of the NI Science Festival,  the Saturday Kids Shows with the Barking Dog Theatre Company and Treasure Island.
Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council, Alderman Graham Warke, said it was great to see a full Spring programme back at the Alley.
"I was delighted to launch the new Spring programme at the Alley Theatre, marking the 15th anniversary and a return to more normal programming at this important venue.
"The theatre team have worked incredibly hard to put together a jam-packed schedule that has so many amazing shows and exhibitions. 
"There really is something in it for everyone and it will be fantastic to see more and more people coming back through the doors of the Alley in the next few months.
"We are also still conscious of Covid-19 and the health and safety of all visitors is a big priority, so everyone can be assured there will be appropriate measures in place to keep people safe.
"Make sure you check out the programme and start marking off your calendars and getting your tickets bought!"
Louise Boyce, The Alley Manager, said they were delighted to be welcoming the public back. 
"It is such a privilege to be leading such a strong team to create our Spring Programme for our existing and new patrons to get back to what we all love! 
"The Alley Theatre really does take pride in creating opportunities for audiences and performers to enjoy a first class experience at The Alley. 
"We are the leading cultural hub in the North West and we want everyone to avail of the content in the Spring Programme" she continued. 
"We want to extend a huge thanks and appreciation to our local talent, promoters, performers and patrons who continue to avail of The Alley. 

"We look forward to working with you all throughout  the Spring season."
