AN POST TOGETHER NOW
To send a letter is a good way to go somewhere without moving anything but your heart. ~Phyllis Theroux
We are delighted to reveal an exciting and brand new partnership with An Post at this year’s All Together Now. It’s all about parcels these days but we’ve teamed up An Post to create a unique and special space on the beautiful grounds of Curraghmore Estate, promoting the importance of letter writing and the art of written communication, while sending a special limited-edition memento of your time here to friend, family or even to yourself.
An Post and All Together Now both promote connectivity, and the creation and sharing of special memories and moments. An Post will be located in the heart of the main arena, under the watchful eye of the Big Wheel, and a main stage view while you put pen to paper at this unique post office.
Together we have commissioned 6 beautiful limited-edition postcards, designed by artists Diarmuid Ó Catháin, Ruan Van Vliet, Shane O'Driscoll, Max Phillips, Malcolm McGettigan and All Together Now festival designer Cian Ryan, showcasing the incredible, diverse talent that we have in Ireland.
An Post invites festival-goers to join them at their special ‘Postbox’, to collect their complimentary designer postcard and write a message, poem or pun, short and sweet or filled with details! Each postcard is pre-stamped and ready for posting. Pop the postcard in An Post’s All Together Now post box and let someone know you are thinking of them. These cards are made to be sent far and wide!
Letters and postcards open up and foster relationships, friendships and comradeship - an ethos close to our hearts at All Together Now. Working with An Post on this creative and unique partnership enables festival-goers to share their memories with loved ones, a physical memento of their time at All Together Now 2019.
While we are all used to gathering memories and artefacts at festivals, we occasionally lose some things as well….. such as passports, wallets, driver licenses, bank cards and so on. An Post has got you covered and will be available to return any lost property found at the festival that has your full name and address on it… This will be the first service of its kind for Irish festival-goers, courtesy of An Post.
An Post’s Garrett Bridgeman, Managing Director, Mails and Parcels, says ‘’Connectivity lies at the heart of everything we do, our business, the way we do that business, and or journey towards a sustainable future for An Post. Our connection with ‘All Together Now’ is the perfect expression of what we are and what we aim to be –now and for generations to come.’’
