The Kino is the latest Irish music venue set to re-open following lockdown.

As well as reopening its café from 8pm Monday, July 20th, the Cork venue will host its first live event on Friday, July 24th. Ahead of further gig announcements in the coming weeks, the line-up for the July 24th show will feature The Tan Jackets‘ Rock and Roll Revue Show.

Elsewhere, Junior Brother plays the venue on Saturday, July 25th, and Dundalk’s finest The Mary Wallopers will play a two-night stint on July 31st and August 1st. This show will be broadcast live via a multi-camera set-up.  And for the August bank holiday weekend, Foxy P. Cox’s Peacock Parlour will take over the venue on Sunday, August 2nd.

As with venues across the country, the Kino will be adhering to the guidelines set out by the government and “making the safety of our staff, customers and performers paramount.” The max capacity of the venue is now 60 people to allow for social distancing. All shows will be fully seated, cabaret-style. Tables for 2-5 people can be pre-booked here and here. Check out full details for the shows below.

Ed O’Leary and Joe Kelly of The Kino said, ‘We’re delighted to be reopening on Friday July 24th and excited to present a broad spectrum of the best of Irish bands, acts, and productions. One of the positives of the lockdown is that it will give us the ability to put on predominantly Irish acts in this new all seated cabaret-style set up.”
