We’re thrilled once again to welcome everyone to FNNY – back with our usual winter party just after New Years! We’ve taken the experience of the Summer Party, grabbed your feedback, and also grabbed a bigger and friendlier venue, this time in the amazing Generator Hostel, Smithfield! Ideally situated, easy to get to, hip, trendy, spacious, private space, and with good deals on booze, we think this is a great new space for us to go wild and party the night away!
Things will start from around 6pm for socialising, then we will have our returning comedy troupe, with even more comedians, around 7:30pm, followed by our DJ on from 9pm until close at 1:30am! We will have finger food (veg / vegan included) available as usual, included in the ticket price, though note that this isn’t a replacement for your dinner! The venue also has a bar food menu, for those who want burgers or pizza.
Ticket prices are €22 per person – we recognise this is an increase on previous years. We’ve tried very hard to keep prices low and hadn’t raised prices for years, but the realities of getting a suitable venue, paying fees on tickets, comedy acts, and food, as well as being able to support a local charity and our hopes of facilitating more meets in future meant we needed to increase these. For the first time, after hearing from many that they wanted to contribute to the success of the event, we are also adding a ‘sponsor’ ticket type! This is completely optional, and includes the standard ticket. We will also include a (small) goodie bag to offer our appreciation. The sponsor ticket is €30 per person.
We hope you continue to support us, and our charity; our charity this year is National Meals on Wheels Network, a national network providing food to elderly people who need it. Given the cost of living increases felt by many this year, but particularly by those on fixed incomes such as most elderly persons, we felt this long-established charity was suitable this year to receive IrishFurries’ love and support by way of charitable contribution.
