Visiting Hours: Razz My Berries Rockabilly Bash!

Last Friday night saw Lisburn's R-Space Gallery playing host to a low-down, dirty, rock n' roll razzmatazz!

Up-and-coming events organisers Extravaga once again pulled off a fun and imaginative little night in the heart of my home city, with a vintage-and-handmade market, a fortune teller, hot food and some good old blues and rock n' roll to round it all off.
