Final Mandela Hall Show Announced


You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who hasn’t forged a key memory in Mandela Hall since its 1986 naming, so the announcement of its closure – due to the development of the Student’s Union – came as a blow to many. Fortunately, the good people of the SU have invited And So I Watch You From Afar to headline and curate its final ever bill – a genre-spanning tapestry of some of the finest and fast-rising artists from here – taking place on Friday, July 27.

On the bill are Mojo Fury, playing their first show in years, Robocobra Quartet – who’ve just put out one of the albums of 2018 – singer-songwriter David C Clements, Derry electronic wizard Ryan Vail, LaFaro’s Herb Magee, making his first live appearance as NI Music Prize-nominated electronic project Arvo Party, Dublin riff-rockers Bitch Falcon, Belfast-based kitchen sink indie/psych quartet Junk Drawer and Derry pop-punks Cherym, with plenty more yet to be announced.

Tickets ago on sale from Ticketmaster this Friday, 22nd June at 10am, priced £15.
