Wish You Were Here: The Redbarn Story


Complete Control Films is delighted to confirm that the eagerly awaited documentary, ‘Wish You Were Here: The Redbarn Story’ will have its premiere screening at the Walter Raleigh Hotel on Friday 26th of May 2017. The film has been two and a half years in the making, including research, interviews, gathering archive and post-production work.

The interest in and response to the project has been huge. We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of those who took part and who offered material for the film. We are particularly happy to showcase this 70 minute feature length film in Youghal for those who worked, danced, took holidays and even fell in love at Redbarn.

Book Tickets: SOLD OUT

Tickets €10 available at: Cree's Card Shop, and Walter Raleigh Hotel, Youghal.

Wish You Were Here: The Redbarn Story captures a unique moment in Irish history. A time when 3,000 people packed the Redbarn ballroom just to dance.

An era of boys to one side and girls to the other. Here are the stories of young people cramming into cars, sneaking out and hitching to the dance, riding bikes, walking miles to the venue and home again along the country roads and beach.

Here is the generation of romance, carefree summer holidays and hot, sweaty nights dancing to the sounds of swing, rock ‘n’ roll and country.
