Saturday 27th August

Droichead Arts Centre are delighted to present the premiere of Welcome to Ballsgrove, a concept album and documentary launch, composed and directed by Seán Mathews, who was the recipient of a Droichead Artist Bursary in 2021.

Featuring photography from Conor McGuinness and Craig Reay along with Seán’s continued partnership with Producer and Multi-Instrumentalist, Breifne Holohan, Welcome to Ballsgrove promises to give not only past and present Ballsgrove residents a ton of laughs but also anybody who remembers growing up on the edge of a Regional Town or City in Ireland. 

As for the Album, it was written as if Seán, his parents, and his grandparents had always remained in Ballsgrove. As a snapshot, it echoes the beating heart of Drogheda and how it has changed since Ballsgrove was built in 1964. 

The evening will consist of a full screening of the Documentary (dur 30 mins), a short interval, followed by a one-hour performance from Seán alongside collaborating artists from the album. If you have any accessibility requests around seating please contact Box Office on 041 9833946.

Supported by Droichead Arts Centre.
