Friends Events

Friends will be notified in advance of all upcoming events.

Friends Launch

Each July, we invite Friends of the Festival to a private programme presentation with the festival’s Artistic Director, Willie White. The Friends Launch is an invite-only event that gives our members a unique insight into the selection process behind each year’s programme.

Friends Launch 2019 will take place on Monday 29 July, 6pm, Poetry Ireland, 11 Parnell Square East, Dublin 1

Friends Night

For one selected performance during the festival, Friends come together to see a show and enjoy a post-show wine reception. It’s the perfect opportunity to meet with other Friends, festival staff and volunteers and, if possible, the cast and creatives of the show.

Friends Outings

Becoming a Friend of the Festival means much more than just 18 days of theatre in autumn. Friends enjoy year-round benefits, including exclusive events, talks, and scheduled theatre outings each season to the most talked-about productions in Irish theatre. Stay connected for news of our next outing.
