RHA’s Hennessy Lost Friday

Hennessy RHA Lost Friday 1

Marking its final outing for 2017, RHA’S Hennessy Lost Friday returns on this Friday (October 20) with another first-rate bill.

As well as a performance from Columbia Mills and a set from DJ Alex Donald, indie-pop maestros Come On Live Long will also make an appearance on the night. The latter’s second studio, In The Still, was released earlier this year to a wave of critical acclaim (something we will touch upon when we chat with the band ahead of this frankly unmissable show.)

Besides the carefully-curated music bill, this Hennessy Lost Friday will also feature walking tours of the RHA Exhibitions Plunge by Vera Klute in Gallery I and Strange Attractors by Ronnie Hughes in Galleries II & III with RHA Director Patrick T. Murphy. Expect a large array of artworks, from painting, drawing and sculpture to print, video and installation-based work.

Elsewhere, with Halloween just around the corner, the RHA’s art facilitators Hazel and Amie will show visitors how to make Great Gatsby inspired 1920’s feathered masks, headbands and fake moustaches. Guests can get stuck into creating some artworks or whatever they wish with the huge array of free materials to work with.

Sealing the deal will be Hennessy cocktails, a tasting masterclass with the drink’s brand ambassador and RHA’s Coppa Café will serve up some good food throughout.

The event is strictly over 21s. Tickets are priced €20 + booking fee (which includes two complimentary Hennessy cocktails – nice). For up to date info on the event, please see the Facebook event page.
