New Irish Arts are delighted to be back with one of Belfast’s most popular seasonal events, Ireland in Christmas Praise, for two nights in the Waterfront Hall, 17 and 18 December 2021.
Featuring the New Irish Choir, Orchestra, and Youth Choir under the direction of Jonathan Rea, with top-quality guest soloists, they will present the Christmas story and there’ll even be some traditional carols for you to join in.
Social distancing is no longer required in the audience, but you can choose to sit in a socially distanced part of the hall if you wish.
The following blocks will be socially distanced. Block B, D, G, H, Q and T.
Socially distanced seats are arranged mostly in groups of 2, with 2 empty seats between each group.
The musicians and singers will be socially distanced on stage, so the group will be slightly smaller than usual, but will still have all the traditional atmosphere and fun as we celebrate Christmas together again.
