FRINGE @ FACEBOOK DUBLIN HQ


Relax and unwind in Facebook Dublin HQ trendy offices with some scrumptious food and drinks. Network with fellow attendees and speakers and enjoy the fringe entertainment.

The Thursday fringe is open from 6-9.30pm. At 7pm attendees can enjoy some poetry from esteemed poet Kate Dempsey, who has won numerous awards for her work as well as running Poetry Divas, a collective of women poets who aim to blur the boundary between books and theatre.

Then, after a short break, Limerick native and singer-songwriter Emma Langford will perform some of her favourite tunes with her powerful signature vocal and musical style, blending elements of an Irish lilt with a Latin beat, jazz and folk.

Langford rose to fame in 2016 when she received international acclaim for Tug O’ War, a home-recorded song about anxiety, before managing to crowdfund and launch her self-titled debut EP in June of the same year to a sold-out date in Limerick.

To end Thursday evening, a DJ will then play some tunes.
