Night at the OsKaRs
Date for your diary! We are delighted to announce that we will be hosting a Night at the OsKaRs fundraiser on Saturday 10th November in Tullamore Court Hotel. This will involve seven short films being made locally with all local actors and actresses (no previous acting experience necessary!) which will then be shown on the night with ‘OsKars’ awarded for best film, best actor, best actress etc. This Thursday evening 23rd August at 7.30pm in the Clubhouse, we will have an information evening which everyone is more than welcome to attend. If you think that a bit of acting could be you, then please come along!
