Van Morrison announces intimate show in the iconic Seamus Heaney HomePlace

Van Morrison will be performing three exclusive shows in The Helicon theatre at Seamus Heaney HomePlace on Thursday 1st August and Friday 2nd 2019. Tickets will be limited to 202 seats per show, providing a unique opportunity for the audience to get up close and personal with a master at work.

This will be Morrison’s debut appearance at the venue, which has particular resonance. Both Morrison and Heaney are celebrated for their creative use of the vernacular in a way which brings language to life for those who read and enjoy their art.

The Helicon, located in Seamus Heaney’s hometown of Bellaghy, Northern Ireland is an intimate performance space, designed with a nod to the Greek theatre which Seamus Heaney so loved.

Tickets for these special events will go on sale on Friday 10th May at 10am, available online only from
