Wexford Arts Centre event a great success

County Wexford Chamber and Wexford Arts Centre ran a unique Business After Hours Networking Event on Thursday evening, June 22. Guests were entertained by a jazz band, a music workshop, and a craft workshop.

“We were delighted and very grateful to partner with County Wexford Chamber on our first Business after Hours event showcasing our upgraded facilities,” said Elizabeth Whyte, Executive Director of Wexford Arts Centre. “The event allowed us to provide a taste of what we have on offer with participating artists including Kevin Lawlor Trio with guest performer Melanie O’Reilly. We also ran drop-in felt-making and print workshops with Jeni Roddy and Brid Colloton and Deirdre Buttimer, with information available for staff with young families with Red Moon Theatre and Mini Maestros. The event was a great success promoting awareness of the art centre and what’s on offer for business and staff engagement for enhancing positive wellbeing in the workplace.”

Wexford Arts Centre sponsors

Wexford Arts Centre Chair Rosemary Hartigan encouraged businesses and staff to join as sponsors and friends at whatever level possible to sustain the ongoing delivery of the vibrant arts programme for all at Wexford Arts Centre. The Centre will be celebrating its 50th anniversary as the oldest regional arts centre in Ireland in 2024.

County Wexford Chamber’s director, Anita Power, welcomed everyone to the event on behalf of County Wexford Chamber, and congratulated the Wexford Arts Centre team on their achievements to date.
