Fundraising Céilí 10Jun

Cancellation statement

We are sorry to announce that due to unforeseen circumstances we are unable to deliver the Fundraising Céilí we had planned for 10 June 2022 at the Ullet Road Unitarian Church. The team there have been incredibly helpful and supportive. Please don’t walk up to the Church doors on Friday in the hope of buying a ticket on the door – the event is not taking place.

Anyone that had bought an advance event ticket has been refunded directly via Eventbrite and all reserved tickets have been cancelled. Emails should have been sent to all bookers to confirm the refunds. We thank buyers for their support and apologise for the inconvenience.

We are very sorry for any disappointment caused and assure all Céilí goers that we will endevour to bring back another céilí before the year is out, as well as the Family Céilí as part of the Liverpool Irish Festival in October.

Sending our best wishes to you all, Team LivIrishFest

Have you got pre-Festival blues? You have?

Well, why not help us to help you, by buying a ticket to our June Fundraising Céilí? There’s be called dances, an affordable bar and a ticketed raffle, to boot!

Run by the Festival’s Board of Trustees, it will feature live music from the ‘legendary’ Finn’s Hotel; ceílí dancing and a bar in the incredible surrounds of Ullet Road’s Unitarian Church. Easy parking on neighbouring streets, close to the 86 and 75 bus routes and a barrel of laughs to boot. All proceeds go to the Liverpool Irish Festival (charity number 1100126) to help sustain our commitment to advancing Irish creativity and public work.

The Liverpool Irish Festival runs many events each year (usually over 50!), the majority of which are free or -at the very least- subsidised. An event like this, help us to show our funders, sponsors and audiences that we raise money from other sources. Commercial ticket income, like this, allows us to show people a good time, whilst giving us an income to use as ‘match’ against public funds.

The performers and venue have volunteered their time in support of the Festival. Every penny helps. Donations can be made on top of online ticket purchases, in cash in person, or by cheque or online payment. We are extremely grateful for all support we receive. We promise to reinvest this in to more arts and cultural activities in future.
