Seven Drunken Nights:  The Folk Band that Captivated the World

Seven Drunken Nights brings to life the story of The Dubliners, the most popular band to come from Ireland.  After a two year hiatus in 2019, when the show was forced to take a break; they are now back touring across the UK and Ireland. 

Beginning in their humble abode in O’Donoghue’s Pub in Dublin, Seven Drunken Nights- The Story of the Dubliners takes the audience on their journey which spans a fifty year career of the folk band that captivated the world.  

The show has brought Irish music, culture and craic across 125 prestigious venues in the UK, including Andrew Lloyd Webber’s infamous Adelphi Theatre in the West End. 

Featuring some of their most well recognised ballads, including The Wild Rover and The Black Velvet Band the crowd are immediately immersed in the rich musical performance.  The first part draws upon themes of exile and loss in their performance of ‘Leaving for Liverpool’ about a sailor who has to leave his love and ‘McAlpine’s Fusiliers’ which tells of Irish men who went to work in construction in Britain.

The second part of the show features audience favourite ‘Dirty Old Town’ and a haunting rendition of ‘Carrickfurgus’, as well as a tribute to Luke Kelly, a member of the band who died aged 43 in 1984.  The show gets everyone on their feet with their enthused performances of ‘Molly Malone’ and ‘Whiskey in the Jar’.  

The world class show has been internationally acclaimed and the producers of Seven Drunken Nights-The Story of the Dubliners bring to you the Christmas production ‘Fairytale of New York’ which will include your favourite Christmas songs ‘Driving Home for Christmas’, ‘White Christmas’, ‘Oh Holy Night’, ‘Winter’s Tale’, ‘Silent Night’ and of course ‘Fairytale of New York’.
