Dogs Trust, Sunday 18th August 2019

Dogs Trustival – To celebrate a decade of rescuing and rehoming dogs in Ireland, Dogs Trust Ireland will be holding their very first festival-themed event at their Rehoming Centre in Finglas.

The exciting new family festival will be jam packed with all things doggie! The fun-filled event will boast an array of entertainment for the whole family to enjoy, including training displays with some of the most talented Dogs Trust residents and their Canine Carers, a Tailwaggers Walk market, full of doggie retail and exhibitions, delicious street food vendors, a children's Education Corner with face-painting, Canine Agony Aunts, a Pup Up photo booth with Pawtrait, as well as a Museum of Modern Bark, where a host of well-known artists, including Off The Leash – Audrey Hamilton and Morgan to name but a few – will exhibit pieces of their artwork to be raffled at the event. For people bringing their own dogs*, there will be designated activity areas to let your dogs have fun and explore too!

The main tent will be hosted by TV presenter, author and dog lover, Andrea Hayes, and will feature some well-known Irish music acts who will play exclusive acoustic sets in a small intimate setting, to keep the family entertained throughout the day. Top Irish band, Hudson Taylor, who featured some Dogs Trust residents in their recent music video Run with Me, will play a number of their biggest hits, as well as new Dublin band SARLOOS, who will be performing an acoustic version of their debut single, Changes, which reached almost 4 million streams on Spotify. Special entertainment acts will include a magician, a balloon modeller and live bubbles, as well as the Charity's very own Dog Tales with Andrea Hayes competition, a chance for people to tell the audience what their dog means to them and the impact their dog has had on their life, which will be judged by Irish model Holly Carpenter, TV presenter Maia Dunphy and Dogs Trust Head of Operations Karla Dunne.

*Dogs are welcome once he/she is well socialised, comfortable with other dogs, children and familiar with large crowds of people.

The Ark

So you think that you know the story of Goldilocks? Think again! This summer, enter the world of SCRAPEFOOT, a walk-through visual art experience for audiences of just four people at a time. Goldilocks wasn't always blonde! In fact, over time she has morphed from a fox called SCRAPEFOOT into an old hag, and finally into the Goldilocks we know today. What remains the same in each version of the story, is that they each entered a house in the woods (when nobody was home), to feast, sleep and shelter. Now it's your turn to explore this enchanting house but beware of the three figures who might
