Waterford Musical Society held a fundraising fashion show recently at The Tower Hotel and oh what a night it was! High glamour and great fun blended beautifully with many local stores showcasing the best of their Spring/Summer ranges for 2017. Hosted by WLR's Mary O'Neil, with hair design by Colm Morrissey Hair and Make Up by Beautilicious, the fashion forward ladies of Waterford most certainly got great value for their entry fee of €10.

Subterranean Sounds is delighted to announce the return of one-man folk-punk hero, Hamell on Trial to Waterford. His sell out performance was one of the highlights on the vibrant Waterford muisc scene last year.

A Hamell On Trial gig is unlike any other. A vintage Gibson guitar played like a machine gun is accompanied by an torrent of words delivered at breakneck speed. No topic is sacred and Hamell’s visceral lyrics and razor-sharp wit cover topics that range from from family, social issues to celebrity, politics and power. It’s like Bill Hicks, Woody Guthrie and Joe Strummer all rolled into one. With Trump in The White House, there just might be some explosive new material.

Hammel On Trial plays Phil Grimes Pub on Friday March 10th. Due to the Wales-Ireland rugby match being shown on the big screen downstairs, the show starts

The innocents

Set at the end of the Second World War in Poland, The Innocents is a sensitive and emotionally involving drama about Mathilde, a young French Red Cross doctor, who comes to the aid of a group of nuns, many of whom have been raped by Soviet soldiers.

Based on real events, director Anne Fontaine (Coco Before Chanel) explores this fraught situation with great humanity and sensitivity.

Mathilde protects the nuns not only from further attacks but also from the Mother Superior who'd prefer to conceal the scandal at all costs.

The Innocents is an emotionally layered, tender and insightful drama. The complexities of trauma and shame are deftly and sensitively handled through the prism of faith and compassion.

The Innocents screens in Garter Lane Arts Centre on Sunday, March 12th at 7.30pm. Booking 051-855038 & garterlane.ie.
