For the first time, TG4 is taking its Opry series, The Millennium Forum, to four nights. The previous shows in the hit series have all come from the Town Hall in Newry. Now, it is the turn of Derry to experience a week of some great country music and the people here sure know how to row in behind a good venture when it comes to their city.

Opry Dhoire gets underway on Wednesday night, 30 August, when TG4 pays a special tribute to Ireland’s best-loved country singer of all, Big Tom McBride. This will be Tom’s first show in Derry for many years and his visit is creating huge interest with the venue, expected to be sold out in advance.
