This year’s theme is Our Town, Our Place, Our Festival. The banners and flags created by the artistic team, with the help of nearly 250 people in the local community explored this topic and now transform the town with their vibrant colour and creative splendour. The Cafés Carte Blanche return again with a new range of exciting flavours and entertaining drop-in activities. The theatre programme is, we believe, most exciting with several international shows and three new shows created by Irish theatre makers in collaboration with Clonmel Junction Festival. Two of these are in the Emerging Artist Series; the third is City of Clowns, a co-production with Barabbas Theatre Company which will incorporate over 50 performers from Clonmel working with Raymond Keane in the run up to the Festival. Local performers will also be involved in the Festival Choir with two concerts focussing on Austrian music this year. Once again, the Old Chadwicks building on Queen Street will be our focal point, housing the popular Playlounge family space and café, the now familiar theatre and Jackie’s Catering Tent where one and all can come to share a hearty meal. We are deeply appreciative of all the support we receive both from the national funding agencies, local funders, sponsors, patrons and from the public, who support us and enjoy the Festival as volunteers, friends and audiences. It comes but once a year and offers so many opportunities for new adventures, wonderful encounters and magical moments. Join us in the many venues around town and be a part of it.

The threat of bankruptcy forces this incongruous crew out to sea in treacherous weather conditions. Not only do they have to battle the relentless storm, they must also battle each others egos. Their lives are not the only thing they could lose. Why we picked the show: We saw Bound in Edinburgh last year and were captivated by this gripping adventure, told with enthusiasm and energy. The sea shanties sung in four part harmony are the icing on the cake. If you loved Tom Crean Antarctic Explorer back in 2004, you will love this! “Bursting with fresh talent” The Times “An emotional storm” The Telegraph Winner Fringe First in Edinburgh Date Fri 1st & Sat 2nd July @ 8pm, Sun 3rd July @@9pm Venue Junction Theatre @ Chadwicks Tickets €16 (Concs €12), Family Tickets €49 4 CLONMEL JUNCTION FESTIVAL + THEATRE Barabbas Theatre Company in association with Clonmel Junction Festival presents City of Clowns With Raymond Keane, Directed by Maria Fleming A clown show with a difference - A clown story like no other In a warehouse full of empty boxes emerges Fibril the clown. On seeing the audience he is confused and frightened. But slowly he warms to his audience and grows mischievous. But Fibril’s new found contentment is short lived as he realises he must earn his place in the City of Clowns. Barabbas Theatre Company have been one of Ireland’s most important independent theatre companies for over twenty years. Don’t miss this magnificent and magical collaboration between Barabbas and members of the local community who populate the City of Clowns. Why we picked the show: We saw City of Clowns as a work in progress last autumn and fell in love with Raymond Keane’s endearing clown Fibril. We were also captivated by the magic of the city of clowns. An amazing family show.

Two painters are doing a job in a friend’s flat. Acting more like Laurel and Hardy than two decorators, things go horribly wrong when they try to outdo each other with their moves. Throw into the mix an utterly brilliant police chase acted out to increasingly ludicrous sound effects and you get a really manic show suitable for all the family. “Wonderfully fresh and fine comic actors… superb funky moves and breaking… A comedic gem.” The Scotsman “An hour of genuinely breathtaking physical comic theatre. This is a laugh-out-loud funny show, skilfully executed with razor sharp timing and intrinsic hip hop skills.” The List Why we picked the show: Another hit show from Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Flhip Flhop is snappy, slick, funny and wonderfully performed. Think Laurel and Hardy meets Led Zeppelin, or The Marx Brothers with beat box grooves and flipped baseball caps. Date Thurs 7th July @ 9pm, Fri 8th & Sat 9th July @ 7pm Venue Junction Theatre @ Chadwicks Tickets €16 (Concs€12), Family Tickets €49 6 CLONMEL JUNCTION FESTIVAL + THEATRE The Theatre Project presents The Blonde, The Brunette and the Vengeful Redhead Directed by Breege Brennan Rhonda is 43, happily married and settled into family life in the quiet suburban neighbourhood of anytown… until Graham walks out on her and is seen with a “gorgeous blonde”. Lynette, the well-meaning next door neighbour urges Rhonda to confront the woman and that’s when things begin to spiral out of control… Misinformation, mistaken identity, lies and half truths lead to a series of unexpected events, some comic, some tragic. A story in which friends and strangers are drawn together, and relationships are torn apart. “It is a wonderful piece of writing…we are constantly blindsided and misdirected by a very clever script and characters so real they are often hilarious and truly frightening… you shouldn’t miss it…” Sunday Mail, Adelaide “A fascinating play, Hewett’s script is ingeniously written.” Cincinnati Citybeat Why we picked the show: A great scenario for a fun piece of theatre and what a great name for a play? Think Desperate Housewives on the Coleville Road! Date Tues 5th – Thurs 7th July @ 8pm Venue The White Memorial Theatre Tickets €16 (Concs€12), Family Tickets €49 — MAKE A FEAST OF IT — ANY 5 SHOWS DURING THE WEEK, SAVE € 20 7 CLONMEL JUNCTION FESTIVAL + THEATRE Bunk Puppets (Canada) presents Sticks, Stones and Broken Bones Canadian puppeteer Jeff Achtem’s show is one of a kind. His effortless transformation of bits and bobs, balloons and borrowed shoes into surreal shadow puppets is mesmerizing. His imagination is a wonder, bedazzling the audience with flying chickens, brain transplants and sneaky ninjas! “Something really exceptional. His imagination is glorious…you can’t help but be captivated”. Advertiser, Adelaide **** “He’s a master of the art. He’ll leave you wanting more” Glam, Adelaide “The laughs began within seconds of the show starting… a truly captivating performance” Independent Weekly, Adelaide Why we picked the show: Jeff Achtem’s creativity and charm are just amazing. The Festival Director loved every minute of this unusual and wonderful show. Don’t miss it!

Boundaries which are self-imposed, enforced by peer groups, society, or the state. Haunting images abound in a performance bristling with tension that holds the audience in perfect stillness. Why we picked the show: The Festival Director’s visit to Tehran was a profoundly moving experience. He felt that this show captured some of the country’s extraordinary contradictions; creativity, censorship, enthusiasm, despair, energy and lethargy. Date Fri 8th & Sat 9th July @ 9pm Venue Junction Theatre @ Chadwicks Tickets €12 Cheery Wild Productions in association with Clonmel Junction Festival present Love All Directed by Donal Gallagher From the Wimbledon finals to the hangman’s noose, this is the true and terrible tale of Irish sporting legend Vere St. Ledger Gould. A whopping great hangover kept him from the Wimbledon prize, but a head in a hat box almost sent him to the gallows… The electrifying new theatre company ‘Cheery Wild’, have starched their whites, re-stretched their racquets and are ready to serve a virtuoso volley of Victorian melodrama. And if you’re lucky you might even get strawberries and cream… Why we picked the show: Similar to One Small Step which played in Clonmel Junction Festival 2009, Love All is a madcap comedy sure to leave you astounded by our forgotten sporting hero. It’s sure be to be a hit!

I am a Man gives us an insight into this world and it might just change the way you shop! Date Sun 3rd July @ 6.30pm, Mon 4th – Wed 6th @ 7.30pm Venue Superquinn check out (limited capacity) Tickets €12 Entre Les Mots in association with Clonmel Junction Festival present MaDam Directed by Eleonor Nicolas Playing is easy for children. But where does it all go when you grow up and it all gets so very serious? Too much time spent thinking, worrying and fretting! Too little time playing! MaDam is the story of four women who decide to do something about it, to connect their heads back onto their bodies and to remember how to play. Why we picked the show: In 2010 Eleonore Nicolas brought her adorable production of A Spoonful of Silence to Clonmel Junction Festival. This year she is back with a new show which promises to be quirky and playful.

Although reminiscent of other logcabin indie folk contemporaries such as Bon Iver, Breathe Owl Breathe is a much more assuring musical experience - uniquely blending stunning harmony and clever instrumentation with elements of storytelling, humour, and composition. Breathe Owl Breathe demonstrate a deep musicality and craftsmanship in their songs that are ephemerally simple and yet remarkably enduring, crossing genres and generations.

This year we invited participants from local schools and community groups to express what was special, unique and valuable in their lives, their homes and the town community in which they lived. The project process, which took place in April and May, explored the language of symbols and their expressive power through both the Celtic and the Aboriginal Art traditions. The development of personal symbols for each student was supported through a series of visual activities by employing a range of drawing and art tools. Throughout the process, participants engaged in both individual and group art activities and in the creation of original banners which transform the town centre, in both a unique and deeply meaningful manner. Participating schools: Powerstown N.S., Presentation Primary, St-Mary’s CBS, St-Oliver’s N.S., Lisronagh N.S. Participating community groups: CYTE/Active retirement, NLN/Marian Court, Rehab Care, Bridgewater House. Date June 15th–July 15th Venue On display throughout Clonmel Town Centre Brilliant Bunting With Aishling Egan This exciting textile art project ran over a three months period up to the Festival. Textile artist Aishling Egan, a graduate of NCAD and specialist in embroidery, worked with over 40 volunteers from total beginners to craft fanatics - who wished to learn new sewing skills or improve their current ones. The inspiration for the bunting project is drawn from the rainbow, in all its shades, tones, gradients and glory. Participants applied surface decoration to their flags by exploring a variety of sewing techniques including embroidery, stitch, layering, appliqué expressing traditional skills in a contemporary way. The project was a unique opportunity to create something for the community while meeting new people and exchanging skills in the friendly relaxed atmosphere of the Common Thread Café. The bright and brilliant bunting will be hung the length of Mitchell Street to celebrate Clonmel’s civic spirit during the Festival. The bunting will also be kept as a resource to be used by other groups and organisations for future occasions.
