Friends of the Festival
This year as we celebrate the festival celebrates its 60th anniversary we thank our loyal Friends and audience members. Your support makes the world of difference.
There are many ways you can support the festival and becoming a Friend is just one. Doing so will help us to bring the best in Irish and international theatre to Dublin. Friends of the Festival benefit from a priority booking period - giving you access to tickets before anyone else, complimentary and discounted tickets, as well as invitations to exclusive launches and theatre outings year-round. You can also donate, leave a legacy or explore the many ways your organisation or business can become a festival supporter
Andrew Parkes, one such loyal supporter, since 1959, and Friend of the Festival has shared his own personal selection of memories of the Festival which you can read here.
"I do not know which of the events that I have mentioned would have happened even if there had been no Festival. What I do know is that the concentration of live theatre from here and afar during the two or three weeks of the Festival has been a great joy to this member of the audience over the years" Andrew Parkes
