The true spirit of the Emerald Isle will burst onto stage as this hit show returns to touring and celebrating all things Irish. Set against the backdrop of Ireland and America and inspired by real events, Essence of Ireland tells the story of love, joy, happiness and heartache endured by Cora McGowan and Sean Dempsey, as they are separated from each other and their beloved Ireland.

Audiences will see a cast of multinational world class dancers, all of whom have Irish roots, execute their choreography with passion and precision, backed up by a band of talented vocalists. Featuring Irish classics such as Galway Girl, Tell Me Ma, Danny Boy, and Irish Rover, this show is an immersive and unique experience which will provide a sense of unity for anyone who’s ever felt patriotic towards their home country.

Ross Mills, Director of Production and Co-Writer of Essence of Ireland says: “The Irish have a cultural identity like no other, and that pride in their cultural identity, heritage and traditions, manifests itself in the global phenomenon that is ‘St Patrick’s Day’... The six week tour aims to really capture that authentic Irish feeling and celebrate this infectious heritage, which is now shared by all cultures worldwide.”

Prestige Productions has over 100 years’ experience within the music and entertainment industry, producing shows and events for some of the world’s biggest blue chip companies and working with famous artists including The Drifters, Cliff Richard, The Shadows, David Essex, Shirley Bassey and Cilla Black.

For a night out with family and friends, an authentic insight into being Irish, and of course the chance to enjoy the great craic, audiences need look no further.
