Look at all we’ve got for you! Solo shows by Ireland’s best-known cartoonist and by one of our newest talents. A display of the finest cartoons from all around the world, another of cartoons in Irish, and no less then three different shows where cartoons meet science. We also have a panel discussion, a book launch, drawing sessions and more.
A new date for our table quiz – now with many fabulous prizes!
Monday 29 July, Black Gate, 8:00pm
Bring all of your friends, it’s only €40 per table and the prizes will be exceptional. We have so many in fact that we’ll be raffling some as well, so you don’t even have to be clever to walk off with loot. Many thanks to the generosity of our sponsors.
The quiz will be almost entirely on general knowledge, though there will be one cartoon round. So start reading comics if you want that edge…
And of course there’s a bar, many fab wines, lovely food, and that Cartoon Festival atmosphere!
Huge thanks to everyone who made our first ever cartoon auction a big success last night, especially sponsors the Liquor Lounge (upstairs at the Dáil Bar) and the Latin Quarter, and of course all the cartoonists. In particular we want to thank Tom Mathews and Gerard Crowley who donated original works to the cause.
Special thanks too to Brendan Savage who did a simply brilliant job as MC, and of course to everyone who came – especially those of you who bought cartoons.
If you weren’t there… Well, you should have been. We sold 30 pieces (23 prints and 7 original drawings), mostly at bargain prices.
It was a huge boost for us, raising enough to make some of our ideas feasible, so look out for news about the 2019 festival soon!
