Unsettled by their arrival it is revealed that he and many in the community profiteered from the deportation of their Jewish neighbours. Are these strangers here to reclaim the property and goods of deceased relatives? Or to expose the false denouncements of old friends? As the two strangers move silently towards the town, recriminations are rife as those involved buckle and unravel under the weight of their own lies. Unfolding on a summer’s day, 1945 examines collective guilt in a rural Hungarian community.

The 80’s, 90’s and 00’s are coming back in a big way! We've been hunting Pokémon, binge-watching the Sabrina the Teenage Witch reboot series, buying tickets to the Spice Girls, and dusting off our denim dungarees. Now is the time to put this nostalgia know-how to the test at this year's Baboró Fundraising Throwback Table Quiz. All proceeds from the table quiz will directly fund Baboró’s ACCESS programme, providing free creative arts experiences for our youngest citizens. Baboró International Arts Festival for Children is a charity organisation and greatly appreciates your support on the night.

Leonard Cohen Tribute Band
20:00-23:00, Monroe's Galway, €24
It all started with a small silent wish of musician Rinus van den Boomen: to play songs from his idol Leonard Cohen.

MacDara O'Dwyer
21:00-00:00, The Ol' 55
Come in for tasty pints and to be entertained by the one and only.

He knows all the songs you love.

Lee 'Scratch' Perry
20:00-23:00, Roisín Dubh, €24
Regarded with awe throughout the music world, Lee “Scratch” Perry holds status as one of the most enduring and original reggae producers and artists of all time.
Always one to follow the beat of his own drummers, the eccentric genius Perry continues to break new ground with the hardest rebel Rasta tunes and the most unpredictable instrumental dubs.  Lee Perry has most recently been touring Europe, riveting both old and new fans with a full measure of his blessings.
