TOM MCLELLAN ‘WISH YOU WERE HERE’ MUSIC PROJECT
The Tom McLellan ‘Wish You Were Here’ Music project is dedicated to the late Tom McLellan, musician, friend and former employee of Fermoy Community Youth Centre.

Those with 2 siblings or more will pay €5.00 for first child/workshop and an additional €2.50 for all children/workshops thereafter. It is recommended that all children try one instrument at a time and do vocals and music performance which is free. The fee structure is designed to encourage this. Please arrive 15 mins before each workshop.
Flute is available with arrangement for bass still on-going. Please bring instruments if you have them, otherwise we will provide them. These workshops will include the opportunity to perform live on the stage, with the added chance to support well known artists before they perform at The Palace Theatre. All workshops are run as non-profit with all monies raised being used for the benefit of the project. All workshops will be supervised by a minimum of two people.
Anyone who has instruments they wish to donate to this group, please contact the office here. Musical or artistic volunteers are needed to help with the running of this project – please click here for details. For more information please contact the office on 025 – 32042.

The theatre is also available for rental as a rehearsal/practice space for bands and individuals who may want to experience playing in a concert type space.
