Our team at 10 Days in Dublin (Ireland's only completely open multi-disciplinary arts festival) are continuing preparations for our 2013 festival with another outstanding fundraiser. Over the next short while, we're aiming to raise €10,000 in donations in order to fund the costs of setting up for the festival's most ambitious year yet. This '10 Grand in Dublin' project is based around three very special fundraising gigs, the second of which takes place in Smock Alley on Thursday 21st February and feature sketch heroes Foil Arms and Hog, along with some very special guests.

Foil Arms and Hog are Ireland's premier comedy sketch group. They delight audiences on a regular basis, with shows throughout the UK and Irish Comedy circuit. They have appeared at numerous international festivals including four consecutive sell out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Their material has been described as ‘Fantastic and increasingly bizarre’ and ‘Deliriously funny and at time unexpectedly dark’. Recently, they enjoyed an acclaimed appearance on Des Bishop's RTE show 'Under The Influence'.

10 Days in Dublin 2012 performers Conor O'Toole ('Nothing short of amazing' - Fest) and Christian Talbot contribute to an exciting and eclectic mix, while Paul Currie (fresh from a stint on the BBC's 'Live at the Electric') and Sean Nolan complete an amazing line-up for the night.
