27-07-2016 Tullamore Arts Centre will have a winter programme before construction
With the completion of the sale of Kilroy’s on High Street for the purpose of refurbishing it into the long awaited Arts Centre for Tullamore, the board of Tullamore Community Arts Centre have announced that, starting with Culture Night on Sept 16th, the new ‘venue’ will have an occasional programme of events over the winter. New signage on the window has tickled curiosity as to what might be afoot in the coming months. While the processes of redesign and tendering are underway, Foundation Arts (the annual festival which has occupied Kilroy’s since 2013) will evolve to bring a selection of artistic projects and events to the premises before construction starts. This means that High Street will become an occasional hot spot of cultural happenings, giving the town a flavour of what the centre will bring on a long term basis.
