Drogheda is firmly becoming recognisable as a go to place for high quality classical music and with plans for the 2019/20 Drogheda Classical Music series unveiled, this reputation can be upheld. The season offers a broad range of classical music concerts, many of which are exclusive to Drogheda, and include a wealth of celebrated Irish and international musicians.

All concerts take place in St Peter’s Church of Ireland and begin at 7:30pm with a pre-concert talk at 7pm.

Our hugely successful THEATRE CLUB returns this autumn, with a programme of six unique shows to engage and entertain audiences. And for the first time ever, this season we’ll be taking our THEATRE CLUB on the road, with a trip offsite to the Abbey Theatre in Dublin!
THEATRE CLUB brings people together to see a play, and then discuss it afterwards. Like a book club, you can share your views, thoughts and impressions in the relaxed, informal setting of our café/bar.

Drogheda Walks

A team of Drogheda locals came together to map four walks which highlight the natural beauty, built heritage and historical wealth of our town.   The walks range in length from the 1.5km ‘Five Bridges’ walk, to the 6.5km ‘Steps’ walk.  The 4km historical ‘Walls’ walk and pretty ‘Spires and Towers’ walks traverse both sides of the river and reveal great views.  

The walks are aimed at locals as much as visitors to enjoy, and you can share your photos on #droghedawalks
