Our Top 10 Christmas Gift Ideas
Christmas is just around the corner, and if you’ve still got names to tick off your list we’ve got a list you’ll love!
Our Spring 2019 programme is more diverse than ever so it’s never been easier to give the gift of a great night out. This is our Top 10, but make sure to check out our full event listings to find your perfect ticket.

1.  Gift Vouchers

OK, maybe we’re cheating a little bit here but a Pavilion Theatre Gift Voucher really is the one-size-fits all present for lovers of music, theatre, comedy, dance and much more. Valid against all of our events and available to print at home, pick up from our Box Office or have delivered (before Thu 20 Dec), vouchers are our most popular Christmas gift for a reason!

2. Mary Coughlan (Fri 4 Jan)

Unmatched in her mastery of blues and jazz, a ticket to see Mary Coughlan live is a no-brainer for any music lover. With over 30 years of performing experience under her belt, the Invisible to You singer packs a bigger emotional punch now than ever.

3. Degas: Passion for Perfection (Tue 15 Jan)

After the chaos of the Christmas season, the artist in your life might appreciate tickets to this Exhibition on Screen film charting the career of French Impressionist Edgar Degas. It’s the perfect excuse to sit back, relax and enjoy the exquisite work of one of the greatest painters who ever lived.

4. The Special Consensus (Thu 17 Jan)

What do you get when you combine traditional Irish, Scottish and English music, filtered through American gospel, country and folk? This infectious style is known as bluegrass and no one plays it better than Grammy nominees The Special Consensus! This is sure to be a treat for the more adventurous music lover.

5. Postcards from the Ledge (Tue 5 – Sat 9 Feb)

From bestselling writer Paul Howard, Postcards from the Ledge is the latest hysterical play about notorious philanderer and rugby jock Ross O’Carroll-Kelly starring the “incomparable” (Sunday Independent) Rory Nolan.

6. On Blueberry Hill by Sebastian Barry (Tue 12 – Sat 16 Feb)

A runaway hit at Dublin Theatre Festival 2017, On Blueberry Hill makes its triumphant return to Pavilion Theatre with the original cast of Niall Buggy and David Ganly performing Sebastian Barry’s (Days Without End) stirring tale of love in the prison of the human heart.

7. David O’Doherty (Sun 17 & Tue 19 Feb)

DOD is back with his brand new show, You Have to Laugh. The beloved Dublin stand-up known for his whimsical, laid-back style and attachment to a Yamaha children’s keyboard is no stranger to Pavilion Theatre and tickets to see him should be a pleasant surprise for the comedy nerd in your life.

8. Irish National Opera’s Orfeo ed Euridice (Wed 27 & Thu 28 Feb)

Give the gift of a night at the opera this Christmas as Gluck’s powerful take on the classic Greek tragedy. Featuring world-class opera singers, United Fall dancers and the Irish Baroque Orchestra, it’s sure to be an inspiring production.

9. Rhiannon Giddens & Francesco Turrisi (Wed 6 Mar)

North Carolinian Grammy-winner Rhiannon Giddens has become widely known for her work with old-time string band Carolina Chocolate Drops as well as her own soulful solo material. The singer, violinist and banjo player will be joined by Italian accompanist Turrisi for this very special Music Network concert.

10. Monday Night Cinema Season Ticket

Our wildly popular Monday Night Cinema series returns in Spring 2019 with an eye-popping selection of films to keep even the most discerning film buff satisfied this award season. There are Oscar favourites, Irish productions, French comedies, WWII dramas and plenty more besides – and a €96 Season Ticket entitles them to entry for 16 weeks from January till April.
