If you want to witness a spectacle guaranteed to move you, to bring you joy and simply make you feel great, the stage production of Billy Elliot at the?Bord G?is Energy Theatre is a show that must be seen.

Over 10 million people across five continents have watched it, and it’s picked up over 80 international awards (including 10 Tony Awards and five Olivier Awards), and now finally the smash hit show will come to Ireland for the first time this summer. Running from 26th July until 3rd September at Bord G?is Energy Theatre, this story of triumph, will, without a’doubt, be the feel-good production of the summer.

This uplifting musical tells the story of young Billy Elliot, as he goes on a journey from the boxing ring to the ballet class, where he discovers a passion for dance, which in turn, changes his life forever.
