Tickets for The Big Dingle Reunion are On Sale Now

This September, to celebrate The Florrie’s 135th birthday, we are planning a huge reunion party for everyone who has had a connection to The Dingle over the past century.

Join us for a night of reminiscing and laughter as we celebrate The Florrie’s 135th birthday and everything Dingle. On the night, we will have live entertainment and hot food (included in the ticket price), and you will have the chance to win big in our bingo and raffles!

Additionally, you can check out our exhibition featuring photographs from the past and historic stories about our area. It’s your event, so come and join in, talk, laugh, and reminisce about YOUR history.

Tickets are available online or by visiting The Florrie and asking at reception. They are just £15 for a night of live entertainment and a hot meal, with all funds raised on the night supporting The Florrie’s continued work in the community.

We Need Your Memories

As part of the celebration, we are creating an exhibition celebrating the history of The Dingle. But to make this happen, we need you to join in & share your stories & memories with us.

• Did you or do you still live or work in The Dingle?
• Did you go to school here?
• Did you play for a local football team?
• Do you or your family members have stories, photos, artefacts, or home movies of your life in Dingle that you’d love to share?
• Maybe you’ve moved abroad & still fondly remember your upbringing as a Dingle-ite?

This is a celebration of our amazing area for people of all ages with any connection to The Dingle. We want to highlight & preserve the real lives of our community, from the seemingly mundane to the extraordinary stories hidden within.

Tony Caveney, fundraiser at The Florrie & Life long Dingle-ite said: “Dingle means so much to so many. I can trace my family history in The Dingle back over three generations. At 54, I’m still here, and like many others, I hold a deep love for our area and feel a strong sense of protection over it. What better opportunity than now to preserve our history for future generations? We’re reaching out to both current Dingle residents and ex-pats, asking you to share your memorabilia and memories from Dingle’s past for this exhibition. This will be truly remarkable. As The Florrie celebrates its birthday, we’d be honoured to celebrate it alongside you, the people of Dingle.”
