If you remember the 1980s, if you loved The Commitments or Once, if you love a good dance under a glitter ball, Sing Street, our Fringe gala event, is just for you. One of last year’s best-loved Indie films, Sing Street takes us back to Dublin in 1985 and has a soundtrack that is destined to become your earworm for the rest of the week. Fifteen-year old Conor has just been moved from his fancy private school to a rough state school and he’s not fitting in. One day he sees Raphina, a beautiful, aspiring model, and, to impress her, he invites her to be in his band’s video. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have a band never mind a video. He quickly rounds up a motley collection of classmates and, with a bit of eyeliner and a lot of hair gel, they turn themselves into a band but the path of true love never runs smoothly. Combining director John Carney’s trademark warmth and humor with a punk rock edge, and featuring a memorable soundtrack with hits from The Cure, Duran Duran, The Police, and Genesis, Sing Street is an electrifying coming-of-age film that will resonate with music fans across the board.
Dig out those shoulder pads from the back of the wardrobe because, when the lights go up, the fun doesn’t stop. Stay on and enjoy a classic 1980s disco. So come and join us under the glitter ball to go back to the eighties.
