Ballyer Goes International – Again!

Up there with Ruby Wax ! (whatever that means)

Ruby Wax and BWG

Don’t bring any sausages. Ballyer goes international – for the second year in a row!!! Vroom vroom vroom!

Link to the International Literature Festival 2018

This thus establishes Ballyfermot as Ireland’s premier centre for conceptual art and post-punk modernism. Vroom vroom vroom!

Madness 2

Turning up on the night will be Declan O’Rourke, Jimmy Murphy and Joe Duffy – so far! Vroom vroom vroom!  Book your tickets now before there’s no more vroom vroom VROOM!

During last year’s festival we sent a fictional hug to Manchester via Will Self via Morrissey, yes, that’s right we hugged an entire city. Vroom vroom vroom!

This year, be afraid, be very afraid. WTF? Grow a pair, turn up on the night and find out for yourself. Vroom vroom vroom! And remember – don’t bring any sausages.  Don’t say you weren’t warned. Vroom vroom vroom!

How it Works:

Unholster your pencil and write creatively on the spot to a bespoke, tinselled prompt given out on the night.
