More tickets for Derry’s free Clipper concerts are to be released this week.

After the first round of tickets were snapped up in record time last weekend, music lovers will be delighted to hear that they still have the chance to pick up tickets to see top class acts The Undertones, The Saw Doctors, Paddy Nash and the Happy Enchiladas, Paul Casey, Eoghan Quigg, and many, many more over two nights.

The concerts will take place on July 5 , and July 6, and promise a real musical extravaganza for all. Thursday’s ‘Legenderry’ Concert showcases some of the finest local talent, led by the Undertones and local favourites Paddy Nash and the Happy Enchiladas, whilst Friday night’s ‘Clipper Connection’ event celebrates the city’s musical links with the countries participating in the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race, headlined by The Saw Doctors, including Red Hot Chilli Pipers and culminating in an impressive fireworks display .

Tickets for the events will be made available daily throughout the first week of the Clipper Homecoming Festival, from Friday 29th June to Thursday 5th July.

Each day a batch of tickets can be collected at a special Derry City Council information point located on the Quay opposite Quay West restaurant from noon each day.

Anyone hoping to obtain tickets should note that they are restricted to two per person for each of the evening events (a total of four tickets per person), both of which are being staged at the new Ebrington Parade Ground concert venue.

While under 16’s are permitted to attend the event in the company of an adult, tickets are only available to adults over the age of 16, and ID may be required as proof of age. Parents are urged to accompany children hoping to pick up tickets to avoid disappointment.

A specific allocation of tickets will be given out each day, and once these are gone the allocation will begin again at the same time the next day.
