Opening Night Concert



Once again, the Opening Night Concert for the Koroit Irish Festival will be a massive highlight of the weekend.

The 2023 concert will be held on Friday April 28 at the Koroit Theatre and we are busy planning another night to remember. There will be live music - including an Irish Sing-along, special quests, Pete’s Famous Irish Quiz and more big announcements to come. The night starts at 7.30pm, there is no meal but a full bar will be in operation. Tickets are for sale upstairs and downstairs, with the downstairs table seating and upstairs the traditional cinema/theatre rowed seating. Both areas have clear views to the stage and easy access to the bar and toilets. Keep an eye on this page for more information. The Friday night is part of the full weekend ticket, which also includes Saturday-Sunday. These tickets are limited and sell out quickly so be ready in November to purchase them right here at at the tickets page.
