12 Acts of Christmas is glór’s festive gift in the countdown to Christmas. Every day from 13th – 24th December glór will share a specially recorded short 3-minute act by a diverse range of artists and local performers on its social media channels and website. Whilst glór can’t welcome audiences in person this year, 12 Acts of Christmas will capture a flavour of its usual festive fare. Acts include Ballet Ireland; pianist Sean Shannon; the Kilfenora Céilí Band, Susan O’Neill & Tara Howley; Sarah McTernan and well-loved Pantaloons characters; Clare Youth Theatre; The Speks; Nóta Stóta, Nuala Kennedy & Jack Talty; Branar Theatre; Clare Youth Trad Orchestra and Jacinta Sheerin with Steo Wall.
The 12 Acts of Christmas have been filmed by film makers Alex Gill and Maeve Stone, based in Ennistymon.
The 12 Acts of Christmas will be viewable on glór’s Facebook and Instagram pages. Be sure to like and follow glór so you don’t miss out on these beautiful festive acts. The Acts will also feature on the website and on glór’s YouTube channel.
Whilst the lights in glór are dark and performances have moved online, we continue to support artists in many ways including commissioning work, developing initiatives and making our spaces available for artists to develop work. We continue to celebrate and support arts in Clare and we hope that you enjoy these beautiful performances.
