Cork based Accommodation for Cork Entertainment Events

Posted: December 15, 2010

This weekend, in the week prior to the kick off of the main Christmas celebrations and Pantomine season in Cork city, there is a number of entertaining events, concerts and shows on offer in the city to whet ones appetite for the approaching festive season celebrations. Not too far from the main Cork city accommodation at our Silversprings Moran hotel and right in the heart of the city, lies Cork cities main theatre Cork Opera House which s playing host to a number of busy shows for all tastes this weekend with a varied programme for fans of theatre, film, comedy and music.

This Thursday the 9th December is proving to be quite busy with the sold out show of the National Theatre of Londons production of “Hamlet”, but on the same night there is a treat for film lovers as Cork Cine Clubs ten week season of independent film continues on its second week this Thursday at Cork Opera House’s Half Moon Theatre with a showing of “Samson and Delilah” starting at 8:30pm.

If ones whose idea of a good night out, particularly in these times, is a good laugh out and a humorous take on life as opposed to theatre or film, the following night, Friday the 10th December starting at 8pm, Cork Opera House will host the ever popular and internationally recognised Irish comic Jason Byrne who returns to Ireland and indeed to Cork along with his trademark quick fire manic wit for what promises to be a fun night.

And if that’s not enough for music fans there is still one more thing to look forward to this weekend in Cork with “Man in the Mirror: The Music of Michael Jackson” a tribute in music to the works of late and great Michael Jackson also showing at the Opera House at 8pm on Sunday 12th December. Charting Jackson’s story through some stunning renditions of his large catalogue of hits starting with “Bille Jean” in the 70’s right up to “Earth Song” in the 90’s, all performed by renowned Jackson impersonator Anthony Walker along with a full backing band in support this show promises to be a welcome and breathtaking treat for true Michael Jackson fans and lovers of music.

With a fun and varied lineup of evening entertainment in Cork city, and that’s only taking in the shows on offer in only one of its theatres, we’re not taking into account the festive vibe in the streets, the pubs and clubs around the city, there is much to see and do for those paying a visit to Cork city from our Cork base this weekend.
