Dublin Fringe Festival is the largest multidisciplinary arts festival in Ireland and will take place from 9th to 24th September. The event prides itself on showcasing fresh and innovative approaches to the arts from Irish and international makers. This year, 81 productions including 49 world premieres will be staged in 34 venues across the city.
As part of the activity, the Ireland edition of The Times will report on the Dublin Fringe Festival on a daily basis with a range of previews, highlights and news items while The Sunday Times will feature an exclusive pre-promotional guide at the beginning of the month along with a look-back guide when the initiative ends. Complimentary copies of The Ireland edition of The Times and The Sunday Times will be made available to audiences at selected venues and competitions will give readers the opportunity to win exclusive prizes.
The partnership with the Dublin Fringe Festival will see the Ireland edition of The Times and The Sunday Times feature across all of the Festival’s online and offline materials.
According to Victoria Bell, interim chief marketing officer, “this partnership between the Ireland edition of The Times, The Sunday Times and the Dublin Fringe Festival is a very natural fit. The festival is a fantastic platform for fresh and innovative ideas amongst Irish and international artists and our readers enjoy the extensive coverage of the arts which features in our titles. It’s wonderful to be able to join these two elements together and offer a range of perspectives on what’s happening in the arts.”
