Leicester Rose Of Tralee presents our Annual Selection of a Rose on Saturday 21st April 2012 £7 per person 8.30pm – Late at
St Patrick’s Parish Centre, Beaumont Leys Lane, Leicester. Music by Sally Glennon. Admission by ticket only.
The event was originally established in 2005 in recognition of the fact that now every county in Ireland selects a Rose, and that there are now nearly 70 Rose Centres around the world. The Regional Finals is therefore the event that has been established to get this number of Roses down to the 32 Roses that appear on the RTÉ television show in August.
All Roses who take part have won Rose Selection heats in their own regions. Judges at the Regional Finals will choose a number of Roses from each region who will then join Roses from Cork, Dublin, Kerry, London, Australia and New Zealand at the International Festival in August.
Three Roses from the ten British Centres (Birmingham, Derby, Leicester, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Sandwell and Sunderland) will join the London Rose at the International Final.
The 2011 Regional Finals will be held at the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel from Thursday 2nd to Monday 6th June. The host for three nights of Regional Final Rose Selection, is RTÉ Rose of Tralee TV Show host Dáithí Ó Sé
