F I V E R T H O N : crowdfunding campaign launch event

There are 1.6 billion fivers in circulation. We need a mere 2000 of them. Help us get them!

Join us for a night of comedy, spoken word, music and telethon-style fundraising high-jinks, as we launch our crowdfunding campaign “2000 Fivers”.

Tickets: 3 Fivers. (Book your tickets HERE!)
Complimentary cocktail on arrival.

The event will feature the hosting talents of stand-up comedian, film-maker, runner of Firehouse Film Contest and Dublin Fringe 2017 Spirit of Wit winner Conor O’Toole. We’ve a host of guest performers joining us on the night too, including comedian, Headstuff.org columnist and star of RTÉ’s Nowhere Fast Alison Spittle; singer/songwriter, spoken word artist and OutStraight founder Lewis Kenny; and playwright, comedian and recent Cyber-panel host James Moran. We’ll also have performance artist and co-host of Spicebag, a cabaret / live performance / drag / visual arts / multimedia / dance party extravaganza, Sarah Devereux (aka The Dirtbird). We’re delighted as ever to welcome back A4 favourite, legendary troubadour Big Monster Love, as well as songwriter and poet Beatrice Adomaityte. We’ve a few surprises in store on the night too, and  we’ll also be screening a couple of absolute highlights from the Firehouse Film Contest and Hackfest Alternative Animation Festival.

Why do we need so many fivers anyway?

In 2017 A4 was awarded a whopping 4560 fivers to upgrade the electrics and fire alarm system in our building. While this is a lot of fivers, it’s only 70% of the total number of fivers needed! In order to draw down the funds and carry out these necessary upgrades to the building, we need 30% more fivers. That’s 2000 more fivers to match the funding fivers.

Some of these 1.6 billion fivers are yours! Please can we have some? That one in the back of your wallet or purse, it would do nicely. That one you got in your change from a twenty earlier, that’d be fine too. Even that crumpled one in your back pocket you thought was a receipt. Altogether, we only need 2000 of them!

So come along and help us kick our crowdfunding campaign off to a great start, and enjoy a night of glorious variety-show fundraising fun, rarely seen since the peak days of telethon, benefit concerts and comic relief!
