Competition-Win a Pair of Tickets To EPA Festival Green Night on Thursday Oct 28th

Opera goers encouraged to make sustainable fashion choices when choosing their evening outfits and be in with a chance to win a pair of tickets to EPA Festival Green Night on Thursday Oct 28th

This year, as part of the Festival’s partnership with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), we are highlighting the positive impact we can all make on our environment by making sustainable fashion choices.

Wexford Festival Opera audiences are known for their fashionable black-tie attire, so we are encouraging all our audience attending on Thursday 28th October to join us in making sustainable choices when choosing our evening outfits.

Whether it’s borrowing a bowtie from a family member, raiding your wardrobe for that beautiful dress you wore many years ago, or finding the perfect pair of opera gloves in your local charity or vintage shop - every small change in the way we shop and the choices we make daily can make a big difference!

As part of this new initiative by Wexford Festival Opera and the EPA, we are giving our audiences the chance to win a pair of tickets to the performance of Edmea on Thursday Oct 28th to celebrate EPA Green Night.

To enter, all you have to do is join us on Twitter or Instagram and tell us what sustainable outfit or clothing item you would wear and the brief story behind your choice. Make sure to include #EPAGreenNight so we see your entry. If you would rather enter by email, you can email the above to

The competition will close on Friday October 21st and the winner will be notified after a selection process by WFO and EPA. Examples of a clothing item could be a bowtie, cufflinks, gloves, jewellery, bag, shoes and so on. Outfits do not have to contain the colour green, but wouldn’t it be even more fun if they did?

The EPA’s headquarters is based in Johnstown Castle Estate, Wexford, and the agency has been part of the local community for the last 25 years. It has worked with and supported Wexford Festival Opera for many years through various EPA-led initiatives to raise awareness on a variety of environmental issues.


Terms & Conditions 

Wexford Festival Opera or the EPA does not accept any liability for lost, delayed or incomplete entries. Entries will be judged on their effectiveness of how their outfit or clothing item choice showcases the message of sustainable fashion. Winners will be selected by a panel consisting of EPA, Wexford Festival Opera, and one independent member. The decision of the panel is final. Competition prizes cannot be redeemed as cash or credit.
