Super Soul Sunday – live outdoor concert

Off the back of the success of this gig in 2019, we’re bringing an even bigger stage and even more live performances to Mountjoy Square Park on Sunday, June 19th. It’s 100% FREE so make a day of it!

Thanks to the wonderful support of NEIC and Dublin City Council Arts Office, we are going to bring you a line-up of some of Ireland’s best gospel choirs and singers. We’re particularly delighted to be bringing you a live performance from the Forget Me Nots choir, an inclusive, fun choir that unites older people and those affected by dementia with caregiver family and friends.

Live performances on stage from 12:30pm – 6.00pm. The line-up is subject to change.

Food, glorious food!

The wonderful Irish Village Markets will be providing their usual, delicious variety of food trucks with something for every tastebud. Some picnic benches will be provided but for maximum comfort, why not bring a picnic blanket or some camping chairs and make a day of it!

Singing & performance workshops

As part of the overall programme, we are also running some singing and performance workshops at different stages on Sunday June 19th.

Let’s Sing Gospel with Audrey Mattis (all levels) from 9.30am – 12.30pm. Tickets €20 via Eventbrite.

An Introduction to Gospel Music (all levels, particularly welcoming for anyone living with dementia and their families, friends, supporters, and carers). Tickets and enquiries via emailing
