Five Lamps Arts Festival

The Five Lamps Arts Festival 2017 is a week long arts festival in the north inner city of Dublin taking place from 30th March to 6th April. There are 40 events that celebrate the new and older cultures of this historic area. The festival is a bottom up approach to community development. This year we are delighted to be celebrating our 10th year!

The festival team are all volunteers who are passionate about the arts, nobody gets paid except the artists and performers. All money raised goes directly to the artists. We have many free events for the local community and always ensure that all childrens' events are free. We work closely with local schools and community centres throughout the year to produce arts events and activities.

We get support from the Dublin City Council Arts Office and also the Community Development office. We host coffee mornings in our homes and fundraise locally. We take a percentage of the box office takings which helps us to cover our costs. 

The festival costs €25,000 in total, we have over 40 events, each event costs an average of €500 each (to facilitate paying artists and performers). 

We rely on social media and digital marketing to market our events and get our message out to as many people as possible. Please help us to spread the Five Lamps love!

The Five Lamps is a very historic and culturally rich area of Dublin that has hit hard times recently. There is a vibrant and inclusive arts scene that embraces everyone. Our aim is to enable the local community to celebrate its heritage and to bring other Dubliners and tourists to this area to help us make the Five Lamps shine!
Thank-you thank-you thank-you thank-you thank-you thank-you thank-you thank-you thank-you.
Without you this festival will not be possible,

Thanks
