CLOSE to one million people have attended over 8,000 performances in glór, which this weekend celebrates its 21st birthday.

On Saturday, the Ennis cultural venue celebrates 21 years in business and in that time has welcomed 950,000 people to over 8,200 ticketed performances and events.

To celebrate reaching its milestone birthday, glór is collaborating with broadcaster and producer Áine Hensey to present a 21st birthday concert this weekend.

This Saturday, a generation of younger Clare musicians and performers will take to the glór stage this Saturday to echo the opening night performance and to celebrate in true Clare style.

The anniversary concert will once again raise the roof and feature a host of special guests from Clare and beyond, celebrating our creative community through music, dance, and word.

The concert will also feature just some of the many recent collaborations that glór is very proud of.

Compered by Therese McInerney, the concert will feature some of Clare’s finest musicians and performers including Tim Collins, Ceara Conway, Éamonn Cotter, Geraldine Cotter, Marian Curtin, Diarmuid de Faoite, Sharon Howley, Aisling Lyons, Mary Mac Namara, Therese McInerney, Naomi Louisa O’Connell, Emer O’Flaherty, Síomha, Sean Shannon, Dermot Sheedy, Steo Wall and many more.

According to a spokesperson for the venue, glór is looking forward to celebrating its milestone year with this very special event.

“Produced by Áine Hensey in partnership with glór, the concert will bring together a flavour of Clare’s rich musical and theatrical talent that has delighted audiences in the past 21 years.

“Raise a glass to glór and recall your own favourite glór moments in the foyer with live music before and after the concert.”

Glór has also teamed up with local businesses to launch a fundraiser with a chance to win prizes while also supporting the arts in Clare.

The Celebrating 21 years of Arts in Clare concert will take place on Saturday 26 November, 8pm with music in foyer from 7pm. For more see glor.ie
