To celebrate Pride Month 2023, the lovely folks at Kildare Village will be hosting everyone’s favourite mammies’ boys, PJ Kirby and Kevin Twomey, for a live recording of the smash hit I’m Grand Mam podcast.
On Saturday, June 10, the lads will be having their usual cuppa and chats in the heart of Ireland’s premiere shopping destination, discussing style and personal expression and what it means to them.
If you ask us, this sounds like the perfect way to get some outfit inspo for whatever Pride party you’re attending. After taking tips from Cork’s finest gay fashionistas, you’ll be in the perfect place to pick up the best seasonal bargains!
And if that weren’t enough, as we all know, Pride is about more than just rainbows and parties. It’s about supporting the community, and Kildare Village is doing just that. All the proceeds from this unmissable event will go directly to LGBTQ+ youth charity Belong To – an incredibly worthy cause.
In order to make a day of it, be sure to kick things off early with a celebration breakfast in Saba or Sprout. Then, enjoy shopping over 120 leading Irish and international brands.
After catching up on Kevin and PJ’s antics, finish the day in style with dinner and bubbles at Dunne & Crescenzi L’Officina.
With only 60 places available, this is going to be an intimate event not to be missed, so make sure to book early to avoid disappointment.
Tickets are priced at €25 and available to buy from Eventbrite, and don’t forget, all the profits from the ticket sales will be donated to Belong To Youth Service.
