I have attended 3 shows at the Carnegie. The latest this September was a show of Irish step dancers. Myself and friends truly enjoyed it. Very reasonable price, comfortable seating. I wish they had more shows on their calendar.

There is such a variety of events put on at the Carnegie that it's always worth checking what's on. Drama, poetry, music, sometimes local talent, sometimes national, art exhibitions etc. You could spend a whole evening here or twenty minutes browsing. Look in.

Love the Carnegie Arts Centre, and love these musicians! They are not only talented, but the warm banter and stories are fantastic! I went to their concert last year and again this year and if they are there in July of '18, count me in.

Not a big crowd (too bad) but very knowledgeable and supportive. Really enjoyed the music. Refreshments available...More
