The King of East Belfast

Tuesday 6 Aug



‘The King Of East Belfast’ is the story of two men, both called Clark Groves.  One was a bookie at Holywood Arches in the 1950s – a big man with a character to match.  His grandson owned and ran the much-loved Groves Hardware at Ballyhackamore throughout the Troubles and into peacetime.  2020 will see the premiere of a theatre performance about the life and times of these two men.  This year, come along and hear theatre maker Stephen Beggs discuss the story so far.  Expect tall tales and true stories a plenty!
