Join Us in Celebrating Sustainable Fashion at this Year’s Festival

Picture Vintage Rail
This year, as part of Wexford Festival Opera'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 attire, so we are encouraging all our audience attending on Friday 28th October to join us in making sustainable choices when choosing our evening outfits.

Whether it's borrowing a bow-tie 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 initiative we are giving our audiences the chance to win a pair of tickets to the performance of Armida on Friday Oct 28th to celebrate EPA Green Night.

To enter all you have to do is join us on Facebook, 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 do so with by providing the same information and emailing it to

The competition will close on Monday October 24th at 5PM and the winner will be notified after a selection process by WFO and EPA. Examples of a clothing item could be a bow-tie, cufflinks, gloves, jewellery, a bag, shoes and so on. Outfits do not have to contain the colour green, but wouldn't it be fun if they did?

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.
