The European Premiere of
Symphony for our World 

We are putting on our first ever world-class show here in the Gaelic Grounds on tonight Saturday 29th September in association with the National Geographic, called 'National Geographic, Symphony for Our World'.
It is going to be as thrilling a performance as Limerick's Double All Ireland wins! 

What time is the event?

Gates open 6 pm and you can take your seat and enjoy the food and drinks on offer, enjoy live music from the Limerick Jazz Festival in one food area and trad from the Irish World Academy in the other one. 

The CBS Pipe Band are on at 7.20pm on the pitch and Symphony for our World begins at 8 pm sharp.

The show will be over at 10.30pm and there is an interval mid-show.

Can I buy tickets at the event and where do I collect my tickets?

Yes, a Ticketmaster box office will be on site and open from 4pm so you can buy tickets and come back later and the box office will be open until 9 pm. They can also be bought online throughout the day. There are still some great family bundles available for €200 for up to 4 adults.

Can I bring a blanket or my own food?
Yes bring blankets or cushions, wrap up well and maybe a raincoat (just in case!). Picnics are encouraged and you are welcome to bring your own food and drinks but no glass bottles, please.

There will be a quick search on the way in to meet licencing requirements and glass bottles will have to be left at the gate.
