CANNOT ATTEND BUT WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT?
If you would like to support The Lir’s Annual Fundraising Dinner but cannot attend on the night, the option is there to ‘Sponsor A Seat’. In previous years, we have invited Lir grads and alumni to take a sponsored seat and join a table. They share their experiences having trained at The Lir Academy and it often opens-up all kinds of interesting relationships and opportunities for our young actors starting out.

WHY WE ARE FUNDRAISING
Proceeds raised will go towards improving production values of final-year theatre performances as well as The Lir’s Education Bursary scheme. Bursaries enables The Lir to provide financial support for socio-economically disadvantaged students who otherwise would not have the capacity to accept their place at The Lir and fulfil their potential. Trocadero have generously sponsored the food and Distinctive Drinks have generously sponsored the drinks. In addition to the ticket-price of €100, we aim to generate funds via our raffle and silent auction. Every contribution will be invested into The Lir’s Education Bursaries and towards raising the quality of productions at The Lir so that each student is trained to an international standard of excellence. Thank-you for your support of Ireland’s National Academy of Dramatic Art at Trinity College Dublin.
NEW SPONSORSHIP PARTNER:
We are delighted to announce our partner, DISTINCTIVE DRINKS, who have generously sponsored all drinks this evening.
