Men’s Group Trip to the Gate Theatre

The Men’s Group visited the Gate Theatre for a tour of the venue.

In the Foyer Learning About Theatrical Elements

Our guide, Community Engagement Manager John Taite showed around and told us the history of the Theatre. We also heard about the programmes they run for youths and for the local community and schools, getting people to engage and rediscover going out to watch a play.

Hilton Edwards who along with Micheál MacLiammóir founded the Theatre in 1928.

We had a tour of backstage and the auditorium which laid in the more unusual Traverse style with the stage being in the centre and the audience on both sides, being able to see across the stage at each other.

Men’s Group – St Pauls CBS Visit Feb 2024

Last week, the students from St Paul’s CBS dropped in and did activities with the Men’s Group. Some played pool with Martin and Joe. Later, they went on to make boxes for plants. They then potted up plants and decorated the holders, then arranged them around their activity room.

Ozanam House would like to give a huge Thank You to Sean and the lads for all their great help!
