Two of the brightest stars of the 2011 Helium Fundraiser Festival line-up make a welcome return to the Ballymahon area this Hallowe’en bank holiday weekend, when the Rustic Inn in Abbeyshrule plays host to headliners Ham Sandwich and Ballymahon’s own up-and-coming band Breaking Circles.
Maintaining its tradition of offering high quality bank holiday entertainment options, The Rustic Inn is also continuing its gold level support of the Helium Fundraiser Festival by hosting this gig on Sunday October 30 in association with no ego promotions - and all proceeds will go towards Helium 2012 in aid of Friedreichs Ataxia Society of Ireland (FASI ).
Indeed, the cogs are already starting to turn for next year’s festival in Ballymahon - even though the dust has barely settled after the 2011 event. A total of €12,000 was presented to FASI on August 19 as a result of fundraising from the Flora Ladies Mini Marathon and the sold-out Helium Festival which featured the Coronas, KILA, Ham Sandwich, and Jamie Lawson back in June.
In addition, presented by no ego promotions and Helium Events, the Hallowe’en fancy dress party will also include The Dead Disco with local artist DJ Conlon until the eerie early hours!
Helium Festival fans have been rewarded for their loyal support over the past three years with bigger and better events occurring year on year and 2012 is expected to be no different with the process set to kick off in The Rustic this Hallowe’en bank holiday weekend! With more acts still to be added to the line-up, Abbeyshrule is the place to be on the night of Sunday October 30.
