Entertainment, What's On
Teenagers in the Newry and Mourne area will be delighted after it was recently announced that Newry City Hall will play host to the first teenage disco held in the area in nearly 20 years. Newry Times caught up with Cathal McCartney, the organiser of the event, which has been labelled ‘Rapture’.
On what prompted Cathal to pursue the idea he said, “The idea came after me and my mates were reminiscing about the good times we enjoyed as teenagers, the days when we always had a place to go. Nowadays there are less options, Hilltown is literally the only option now for young teenagers to go to if they want to enjoy a nightlife.”
Rapture boasts an exciting lineup, with veteran Newry DJ Kealan spinning the discs. DJ Kealan, a former resident DJ in the Relic Nightclub, will be belting out the hits all night while a new high-tech light-show mesmerizes those teenagers lucky enough to be at the disco. The new disco officially opens on Thursday 22nd December and will run from 8.30pm to 12 midnight with an entrance fee of just £5. Rapture is open to teenagers 13 and over.
