Booking individual workshops

We get a lot of queries from folks who would like to attend just one or two workshops. Priority is given to those attending on Weekender Tickets. Weekender Tickets really are great value so we’d encourage you consider buying one to secure your preferred workshop, even if you can’t make it to all of them. Every ticket sold goes towards supporting the festival which is a not-for-profit run 100% by volunteers.

If there are some workshop spaces left open closer to the date, we may open up ticket sales for individual workshops.

Booking Festival Weekender Tickets

The Gospel Rising Weekender Ticket is the best value ticket you can get. You’ll get access to group workshops on Friday and Sunday, three workshops on Saturday, the Festival Gala Concert at glór on Saturday night and everything else in between! Here’s how to book:

1. Check out the list of workshops

A full list of the workshops are available here and you can get to know this year’s fantastic facilitators here. We’ve got something for everyone whether you’re in a choir or not.

2. Decide which workshops you’d like to attend

Workshops take place over all three days but Saturday is when the core of our workshops take place. We’ve got a guide to the Saturday workshops right here. Everyone gets to choose to attend one workshop in each of the three Saturday sessions. You are allowed to book a place in JUST ONE soloist workshop. This is to allow as many people as possible a shot at attending these popular workshops.

3. Book your ticket!

Once you’ve decided on your workshops, start the ticket-buying process! Scroll down or click here to book your tickets on Eventbrite.com. If there are any workshops you cannot attend, just select the ‘Not Attending‘ from the list of options. Once you have paid for your ticket you will receive a confirmation email with your chosen workshops listed within it.

Tickets cannot be refunded so please select your workshops carefully when booking.

Early bird tickets priced at €55 (ex. fees) are available for a limited time. From Monday 27th March, weekend tickets will be priced at €65 (ex. fees). Any questions or problems, please feel free to email us at bookings@gospelrising.com.

A note on demand!

Demand for tickets is really high this year and as we’re down to the last handful of Weekender tickets, there may be some difficulty in booking the workshops you want in the final days before Early Bird Weekender sales end. If you do have any problems, please email mary@gospelrising.com.
