The press launch for the 2016 summer run of Once took place in the iconic setting of Walton’s Music store in Dublin.

We were joined by John Carney, who wrote and directed the film, and more recently the hugely successful Sing Street. John dropped in to chat about where it all began when he filmed the now famous scenes in Walton’s with Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová.

Many of the phenomenal actor-musicians who are returning to the show this summer came along to sing a few songs and to chat about returning to the Olympia Theatre this summer. They’ll be joined by Turlough Gunawardhana as Emcee and Sam Cieri as Guy.

Once runs at the Olympia Theatre from 2 July – 27 August, 2016. Tickets are on sale now.
