A convivial evening meal with spoken word, music and compelling conversations, this happening is far more than the sum of its parts: it’s a confluence of influences and inspirations delivering a full sensory and intellectual workout! A deep discussion will be held with Easkey Britton, a big-wave surfer who is using her passion for the ocean to create social change and connection across cultures, and Fergal Smith (pictured), a professional surfer who has returned to the land to start a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm near Lahinch.
