It's Easter and I am officially fed up with the wintry weather so I was delighted to see the fashions for Spring and Summer from the stores in Victoria Square being showcased in AM House. Centre Manager Michelle Greeve was on hand to introduce personal stylist Katherin Farries, who highlighted the looks and colours for the coming season with cocktails and mocktails by Chinawhite and canapes from Yo!Sushi.

Dungannon Film Club is recognised for its alternative ways of promoting movies and the latest venture was no exception. The brilliant 2004 film Sideways is about two men on a wine-tasting road trip, so what better way to mark the screening in Ranfuley House than with a wine-tasting by Robb Bros Wine Merchants and The Wine Rack?

But it isn't just wine that deserves a good tasting, spirits tastings are becoming popular too. Guests invited to a Dillon Bass whiskey tasting who said they weren't partial to the spirit were converted when they sampled the vast array of whiskey brands under the tutelage of Dave McCabe, International Whiskey Ambassador for Dillon Bass and Irish Distillers. What a great job.
