Calling all Belfast Pirate Queens, Sailor Studs and anyone in between…


In the wake of the historic Republic of Ireland YES vote, and 2 whole years after the law change in England and Wales, same sex marriage continues to be unrecognised in Northern Ireland…

WHO? Anybody fabulous with a fire in their belly and a song in their heart (no music reading required)

WHAT? Award-winning singer/composer and campaigner for marriage equality Gwyneth Herbert is forming a Rainbow Pirate Chorus to join her onstage for her song 

Grace O’Malley (All Hail the Pirate Queens)

which celebrates the fearless Irish naval fleet-leader who sailed against the political tide, held the Thames to ransom and changed the world forever…

WHERE? This song will form part of our gig with the Rubber Wellies at The Sunflower, Union St, Belfast BT1 2JG

WHEN? Tuesday 18th August: workshop/rehearsal at 6pm, doors at 7.30pm
