Give My Head Peace!
NI comedian, actor and writer Tim McGarry will open this evening with his inimitable banter before members of the 'Hole in the Wall Gang' read from episodes of the popular comedy show.
They’ll all be there: Da (Tim McGarry), Ma (Olivia Nash), Uncle Andy (Martin Reid), Billy (Michael McDowell), Dymphna (Alexandra Ford), Cal (Damon Quinn) and Pastor Begbie (Paddy Jenkins). Join the Linen Hall Library and Northern Ireland's most dysfunctional family from BBC's Give My Head Peace at the Great Hall at Stormont for a seriously satiric night of laughs.
The evening has been organised as a fundraiser for the Linen Hall Library and marks the 20th anniversary of the first filming of Give My Head Peace, which ran on BBC NI from 1998-2007.

Directions to Stormont Parliament Buildings
Parliament Buildings is situated on the Stormont Estate which is on the east side of Belfast, on the Upper Newtownards Road (A20). When travelling out of Belfast along the Upper Newtownards Road, the large entrance to the Estate can be seen on the left hand side of the road, approximately 5 miles from the city centre. Access - Pedestrians: The estate is open to pedestrians via the gates on the Upper Newtownards Road and Massey Avenue. Bus Services: Metro bus services 20a and 23 leave at regular intervals from Donegal Square West beside Belfast City Hall. On arrival at Stormont Estate, buses stop at the Massey Avenue gates and beside the Carson Statue roundabout. The sightseeing 'hop on-off' buses which leave from the City Centre also drive through the Stormont Estate allowing guests to visit Parliament Buildings. Car Parking: If you wish to visit Parliament Buildings by car, there is a Visitors’ Car Park to the right hand side of the building (as you look at it) which visitors can use. Parking on a Monday and Tuesday in particular are very busy, so guests may be expected to park on the roads around Parliament Building.
