Bright Friday Event

Friday 24th November

Newman University Church, St Stephen's Green

Publisher Columba Press is teaming up with musicians, poets and mindfulness practitioners to hold a day of calm and reflection in opposition to the increasing dominance of so-called ‘Black Friday’, the annual shopping frenzy which sees customers queuing and shoving to get bargain deals.

‘Bright Friday’ which is on November 24th this year will be held in University Church St Stephen’s Green in the heart of Dublin city on a day which retailers hope will kick-off the busy Christmas spending spree. It will have periods of reflective music, mindfulness, meditations and poetry readings.  Mindfulness practitioners such as Sr Stan, Poet John F Deane, singer Noirin Ni Riain and Martina Lehane Sheehan and a growing number of musicians and poets have already signed up to attend the free event.

People wanting an antidote to the consumerism of the day are being encouraged to drop by.
