What we're about

Bar Monkey Events is delighted to announce the launch of the first Urban Culture Festival of it’s kind!

WHERE: dlr leisure Loughlinstown, Dublin. WHEN: July 30th 2016

This one day event will celebrate various forms of culture that focus on self-expression. Whether that is through movement, art or music, we are promoting all kinds at this special event. We want attendants of this event to become amazed at what they witness on this day and come away from this having discovered a form of self-expression that inspires them to discover their own passion.

This event will celebrate forms of movement in the shape of Breakdancing, Parkour and Calisthenics, as well as various other forms of movement such as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Yoga and Capoeira. There will be displays of each on the day and also the opportunity to try and learn some of these movements for attendants. We will also be hosting a calisthenics competition on the day which will feature leading Calisthenics athletes from throughout the country and the UK.

The breakdown of the day will give you the opportunity to participate in a workshop of each particular form of movement. Each workshop will last half an hour and give you a chance to try all of these forms of training for yourself.

Workshops & Demonstrations 12:00-4:00

The event starts at 11:00am and gives you an opportunity to sign up for various workshops at this point. The workshops will then kick-off at 11:30 and will run for half an hour at a time, resuming every fifteen minutes to give people a chance to sign up to another workshop and grab a drink or refreshments if needed!

National Calisthenics Competition

At 4:00pm we will then be finished with workshops and give everybody the opportunity to watch the Calisthenics Competition, which will be the largest ever of it’s kind in Ireland! This is your chance to witness the leading Calisthenics practitioners in Ireland demonstrate their best skills in an effort to become the recognised Irish National Champion! Come and support your friends or family which may be competing and have a lot of fun on the day trying out every other sport on offer! All Athletes interested in competing must comply with our regulations and fill out our application form by clicking here: Bar Monkey Festival Calisthenics Competition . Once this has been filled out we can provide more information to competitors – format of the competition, and rules and regulations etc.

There will be live music acts performing on the day. There will also be food and drinks available on the day.

There is no event of this kind fully focused on showing people the amazing potential that we have as human beings. The aim of this event is to inspire every individual participant to go and find their own passion and discover what amazing possibilities exist within this when you become capable and confident enough to pursue your own goals.

We look forward to seeing you at this event – be inspired and find your own form of self-expression.
