There’s something to tempt all lovers of the arts during Midsummer week at The Old Town Hall, from the stunning Irish tunes of Caladh Nua to a classic 1973 British horror, The Wicker Man.

Caladh Nua start the week on Tuesday with the promise of a rousing and captivating performance of haunting songs and evocative tunes.

Their crystal sound is deeply rooted in the south-eastern counties of Ireland and the band comprises of five versatile musicians and singers who play an array of instruments.

Then there is a Music Madness promotion for June and July where you can buy two tickets for one of our music gigs and get a 2 for 1 ticket offer on either one of the other music nights: Caladh Nua, The Hut People (July 5) and Gordie MacKeeman and his Rhythm Boys (July 12).

HG Wells’ classic science fiction The Time Machine is brought thrillingly and vividly to life by Robert Lloyd Parry of Nunkie Theatre Company (behind the acclaimed MR James Triology) on Wednesday in a new, one-man show with brilliantly imaginative storytelling.

Next Saturday (June 21), celebrate the summer solstice with classic British horror film The Wicker Man directed by Robin Hardy, written by Anthony Shaffer and starring Edward Woodward, Christopher Lee, Diane Cilento and Britt Ekland.

The film follows Sergeant Howie as he travels to Summerisle to investigate the disappearance of a young girl.
