Women on Wednesdays: Whelan’s new night for celebrating women

What better way to celebrate women and raise vital funds than a night out in Whelan's?

Born Optimistic, in conjunction with Aidlink, are launching a brand new event called 'WoW Women on Wednesdays' to showcase the best female music, comedy and spoken word.

Launching on Wednesday July 19, performers such as Eve Belle, Alicia Byrne Keane, NC Grey, Eve Darcy, Hvmmingbyrd and more will take to the stage to offer us a night of music and craic.

For years, the festival scene has been saturated with male acts and this is the time to change all of that.

All proceeds from the night will go towards girls' rights and education in Kenya.

Global North and Global South will support Aidlink's girls' education projects in Kenya and will try to tackle female genital mutilation (FGM), child marriage and gender inequality.

If you fancy heading along, tickets are €10 and they are available at the door on the night or on this website.
