Return of North Sea Gas to Larne

POPULAR Scottish group North Sea Gas will make a welcome return to Larne next month, with a concert at the McNeill Theatre.

The group, which regularly tours North America and Europe, will be back in Northern Ireland by invitation of the Ballycarry Community Association and Broadisland Gathering Festival committee.

North Sea Gas have several albums to their credit and have appeared in concert in the United States and Germany as well as on Chinese television.

Funds raised from the concert, being held on Friday, February 17, will being going to the Assocation to assist with its projects and the event gets underway at 7.30pm.

Tickets, costing £10 each, go on sale this week at the Larne Leisure Centre and at Beattie’s Shop in Ballycarry, Schomberg House in Belfast and Carrickfergus Museum.

The three-man group went down well last year when the theatre was packed for the event, and the organisers are hoping for the same this time around.

The North Sea Gas concert will officially launch this year’s Broadisland Gathering, the 20th in the village.

During the evening details of this year’s Broadisland events will also be announced.
