This month sees the inaugural AOIFE Festival and Events Advice Clinic roll into Cork to engage with the 120 plus Festivals and event organisers in the County.

Aoife’s Executive Director and Communications Assistant will be traversing the Country this season in an effort to meet local member festival and event organisers. Modelled on other network offerings – the pop-up advice clinics are facilitated locally to allow organisers meet AOIFE personnel and get a steer on some of their problems.

Founded in 1993, the Association of Irish Festivals and Events Association is the fourth largest in Europe (with over 200 members) and through training networking and advocating best practice helps ‘not for profit festivals’ reach and expand their local and international goals.

Participants MUST register with the AOIFE Secretariat in advance to book at 30-minute consultation during the time the team are there. The Advice Clinic Service is Free to members and non-members must pay a fee of €50.

For Registration for your 30 minutes Advice Slot or your 30 minute Social Media Mentoring slot please contact Membership Officer Christina at 090 964 3779. Or see www.aoifeonline.com.

The Cast of Harold Pinter’s ‘No Man’s Land’ are on their way to the All-Ireland finals, having won 26 awards, including five best of Festivals, at the Amateur Drama League of Ireland annual three act festivals. The play ‘No Man’s Land, by Harold Pinter, the Nobel Prize Winning Author is directed by Jennifer Williams.

One last opportunity to view this multi award winning play at Skibbereen Town Hall, on Saturday 14th of April, before the finals.

Having met by chance in a pub, two aging writers continue a long night of drinking and reminiscing in a stately London home. As the night wears on, their conversation wanders through memories long forgotten or invented. Is their encounter real or a delusion? Are they strangers or do they share a past history? When unexpected guests intrude upon an increasingly surreal evening, the atmosphere quickly changes from friendly to threatening, and the encounter becomes a game of survival.

Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance by emailing schulldramagroup@gmail.com
