The Beat are back and coming to the Royal Theatre, Castlebar for one of only three Irish dates

Formed in the working class suburbs of industrial Birmingham in England in 1978 The Beat arose at a time of high unemployment and social upheaval. From the outset the band offered messages of hope and peace with an insight into socio-political topics that would later, alongside The Specials, see them heralded as forerunners of the whole

movement. They will be in Castlebar at the Royal Theatre on Sunday March 18 at 11.30pm. Castlebar’s own Dave Barry will be spinning the tunes before hand, with his own unique mix of soul, funk, ska and blues.
