Kíla and Wyvern Lingo play for Outpost artists

There are some tickets left for a concert which is being held this Saturday night in Bray in aid of the artists of Bray's Outpost Studios.

The artists lost priceless work and materials in a fire at their studios on Bray's Boghall Road last February.

The concert will take place on Saturday, September 8, at Mermaid Arts Centre and will feature a series great acts including We Cut Corners, Wyvern Lingo, Sharon Mannion, members of Kíla, and more.

The campaign also includes a gofundme.ie page for donations, and there will be a raffle.

The studios at Southern Cross Business Park were gutted in a fire which also destroyed the offices of HomeLink and Easi-Cab Travel Club.

Outpost was founded in 2014 by artists Joanne Boyle, Raine Hozier Byrne, Rachel Fallon, Emma Finucane, Laura Kelly, Joanna Kidney, Eleanor Phillips and Ann Marie Webb.

Eleanor Phillips told the Bray People at the time that much of what was lost is irreplaceable, including her late partner's writings, exhibition catalogues, tax papers and more, not to mention invaluable pieces of work, tools, materials and equipment.

The loss includes works in progress, research, sketchbooks and many things of personal value as well as their place of work and means of production. The money raised will go towards replacing the tools, materials and equipment for the eight of them and help set up a new studio space.

Tickets to the show are €25 and available at Mermaidartscentre.ie.
