The Gathering is our annual networking event for the Bealtaine community of event organisers, artists, partners and supporters.
This year, the event will take place online across three mornings in October (26th, 27th & 28th). We’ve invited an inspiring line up of speakers who will share their learnings over the past year, and how best to take these new experiences into planning for the future.
We’re delighted to announce that this year’s keynote speaker, Ann Ingle, author of memoir ‘openhearted’, will be in conversation with her daughter, writer Róisín Ingle.
We’re looking forward to sharing the full line up of speakers with you, but in the meantime we’re asking you to save the date:
The Gathering will take place across three morning sessions from 10am – 12:30pm on Tuesday 26th, Wednesday 27th, and Thursday 28th of October.
You can register your interest by clicking here or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, and you’ll receive the booking link as soon as it goes live.
About keynote speaker Ann Ingle:
Ann Ingle was born in London in 1939. She moved to Dublin in 1961 having met and married an Irish man called Peter. They had eight children but after suffering for years with severe mental illness, Peter died by suicide in 1980. Ann, a glass half full kind of woman, graduated from Trinity College as a mature student when she was in her 50s. Writing was just a hobby until she was asked to ghostwrite the story of groundbreaking Irish racing driver Rosemary Smith. The result, Driven, was published by Harper Collins in 2018. Ann turned 82 earlier this year and her memoir openhearted, written during lockdown, has just been published by Penguin Ireland.
