Ringsend Rock School will present an arrangement from War of the Worlds by a 12-piece guitar orchestra as part of their annual Christmas Show this weekend!

Members of the Rock School will be performing a piece from Jeff Wayne’s classic rock opera version of HG Wells’ The War of the Worlds, which tells the story of a Martian invasion of Earth. When Orson Welles performed a live adaptation of the novel on American radio in 1938, listeners are said to have panicked en masse as they believed it to be a real broadcast of an alien invasion.

The show begins at 4.30pm in Ringsend and Irishtown Community Centre this Sunday (21st December).
