OsKaRs Coming to Castlebar this Saturday

Hollywood glamour descends on Castlebar this Saturday 22nd February at 8pm as the county town comes together to host its own ‘ A Night at the OsKaRs’ in the TF Royal Hotel and Theatre.

The OsKaRS is a unique fundraiser that involves ordinary people recreating famous scenes from well-known movies, which are professionally shot and shown on the big screen. The seven films that will be paid tribute to on the night will be; Bridesmaids, Veronica Guerin, The Blues Brothers, The Wind That Shakes the Barley, Waking Ned, Fr Ted and The Snapper. You may have spotted teaser trailers on social media recently featuring well-known sports Ger McDonagh, Danny Kirby and Jordan Loftus.

Four well-known judges will decide the fate of the films; former Rose of Tralee, Mindy O’Sullivan, Mid-West Sports Editor, Michael D. McAndrew, Mayo Person of the Year 2020, Martina Jennings and Owner of Murray Ambulance James Murray. The MC for the night is 98FM’s Adrian Kennedy.

The OsKaRs is fundraising to support voluntary sporting organisations in the community with the aim of enhancing sporting facilities. Three clubs, Castlebar Celtic, Castlebar Mitchels and Castlebar Tennis Club have joined forces to work together, under the umbrella of the ‘Castlebar Community Sports Project’. 10% of the funds raised will also go to other smaller sports clubs in Castlebar.

Tickets for the show are €30 and for that you get to see SEVEN fantastic short-films, free entry into a MONSTER raffle and entry into a OsKaRs After-Party with DJ Paddy Healy PLUS everyone who attends gets a special 44-page commemorative programme. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill fundraiser. This is going to be special.
