Entertainment in East Cork this summer
Sea Church Ballycotton will mark the end of summer with its final barbecue of the season and a night of live music on Tuesday August 29th.
The unique seaside entertainment venue will play host to Eagles tribute act Dezperado, a group of 11 musicians from various bands around Cork, who will play all the hits of the famous American rockers inside the church. Prior to the gig, attendees can enjoy a mouth-watering barbecue on the terrace at Sea Church, with a range of meats, seafood, salads and vegetarian options to suit all tastes.
The event on August 29th marks the end of a season of ‘Barbecue Tuesdays’ at Sea Church; the first one kicked off on July 4th with ‘Strictly Cash,’ a Johnny Cash tribute act providing the music on the night. Since then crowds heading to Ballycotton have enjoyed an array of live music and great food at Sea Church, with acts such as The Riptide Movement, Bon Jovi tribute band Slippery When Wet, and Boogie Bingo.
Commenting on the upcoming end-of-season event, Venue Supervisor at Sea Church Aislinn Walsh said: “It’s been fantastic to see crowds come to Ballycotton from near and far to enjoy the great views and fantastic food on the terrace at Sea Church, and of course the brilliant live music on stage in the church. We want to keep Barbecue Tuesdays going right up until the end of the summer and Dezperado are just the band to create a party vibe. They’ll be joined by a brass section to recreate the vibrant live experience of an Eagles concert. Our chefs will provide an array of delicious food from juicy burgers, flavoursome chicken skewers, and a variety of vegetarian options so people can really make a night of it and finish the summer off in style.”
The team at Sea Church is already planning a busy Autumn with the Ballycotton Comedy Festival taking place on September 29th and 30th. The annual event will see the likes of Dave McSavage, Ross Browne and Eleanor Tiernan take to the stage in the church. To book tickets for any upcoming events, visit www.seachurch.ie
