The International Award is adjudicated by the Irish Council of Civil Liberties (ICCL). The winner of Irish Entertainer of the Year is chosen by a public vote.
Is food served at the event?
Canapés will be served along with a drinks reception from 7 to 9pm. (There is no sit-down meal.)
Is there a bar at the event?
Yes there is full bar service before the ceremony kicks off, but table service only during the event, to cut down on noise. Last orders 1.30am.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Yes it is important to bring your ticket(s). Even a screen grab of your ticket in your phone will be great .We do find that the Eventbrite app is good but people sometimes delay in accessing it at the ticket area.
How long is the award ceremony?
Drinks and canapes- 7-8pm, Awards 8pm- 10pm.
Is there an after-party?
Yes, there will be a Mother DJ in the same venue, with full bar until 1.30am.
Is there a dress code? Is this a formal black tie event?
It’s not strictly a black-tie event, but dress to impress. Have a look at the picture of last years winners ( above ) to get an idea of what that means!
I’ve been nominated. Do I get a complimentary ticket?
Yes, you are entitled to a complimentary ticket. You will be emailed with the promo code that you can use on the seat map. Unfortunately we cannot provide a complimentary ticket for your guest(s).
I’ve bought a ticket already, but now I’m nominated/ my group is nominated. Can I get a refund?
Thanks for buying early! Yes, you can get a refund – please email the organisers and we will sort it out.
I can’t seem to buy more tickets when I use my promo code?
Correct. You have to log in once and use your code for a complimentary ticket, then log in in a second time to buy additional tickets at the table you have chosen.
What’s the best way to get seats all together at the same table?
Do not fill in the amount of tickets you need with the pull-down tabs on the ticketing site. Instead click on GET SEATS – this will bring you straight into the seat map and you can pick your seats.
I picked four seats but my receipt says that they are not together. How do I correct this ?
See previous question. If you pick seats from the pull down tabs and then go to GET SEATS button, you will be brought to the seat map. On the right-hand side will be number of seats out bought and where they are seated. If you don’t like them just press the trash button beside each ticket and then pick your seats on the map. They will come up on the right-hand side of the page after you pick each seat. Then continue to checkout.
I want to get a table of 10 but they are greyed out or unavailable?
These tables are either booked out already or reserved. If the reservation is cancelled these tables will be released.
What is the closing date for ticket sales?
When all the seats are sold, we will close off sales. Seats have been put on sale till the day of the event itself, but normally are sold out a week before the event.
Can I buy tickets at the door?
Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Email Bernard@nxf.ie with any queries.
