CLODAGH MAHON, is the newly appointed Events Manager of ‘Yew Wood Venues’ – the new name behind Youghal’s Premier Venues – The Mall Arts Centre & St. Mary’s Collegiate Church. These venues are run by The Youghal Socio-Economic Development Group who currently lease the buildings from Youghal Town Council.
Clodagh comes to this position with a variety of experience in event management, hoping to build on the success these venues have delivered for Youghal to date. It is her intention to bring a truly diverse and all encompassing programme for the arts to these very unique venues in the coming year.
One of the highlights for the season for the Mall Arts Centre will be ‘Access Cinema’ www.accesscinema.ie a community based cinema club which aims to give local audiences the opportunity to see a range of world cinema, not usually available on commercial screens. This club is particularly relevant in the light of the closure in 2011 of the Regal Cinema in Youghal. Youghal’s Access Cinema Club will launch in June 2012 – make sure to check the local press for details!
The stunning surroundings of St. Mary’s Collegiate Church will of course also play host to a number of unique events throughout the season. Yew Wood Venues is delighted to announce that we will once again work with the local ‘Sacred Roots’ Production Group. Through the delivery of these events we will hope to promote the arts to the youths of Youghal. We will of course continue to work with the local community in delivering community-based productions in both the Mall Arts Centre and St. Mary’s Collegiate Church.
Yew Wood Venues’ next event is ‘1981, Hunger Strike’. This one-person show will take place on the Mall Arts Centre, Youghal on Saturday, 12th May 2012 at 8.00pm. Log onto www.facebook.com/yewwoodvenues (and please like our page!) for details of a chance to win 2 free passes for the event.
