What do Beyonce, One Direction and students from Portlaoise have in common? Well on the 2nd of May 2014 they can all say that they have performed in the 02 Dublin!

Students from Scoil Chroist Ri and Portlaoise College will take to Ireland’s most prestigious stage to showcase their couture trash creation in the Junk Kouture Grand Final 2014 proudly supported by Bank of Ireland and the European Recycling Platform (ERP).

AlatiniumThe event which was due to be held in the Bord Gais Energy Theatre sold out in a record 5 hours at the beginning of April leaving thousands of students, parents and teachers disappointed. The change of venue now ensures that 2,000 additional tickets will be made available through Ticketmaster. These tickets will go on sale at 9.00am on Wednesday 23rd April.

Organiser and founder Elizabeth Curran said today, ‘We were absolutely delighted when the Grand Final sold out in 5 hours and astounded that there was still such a huge demand for tickets. This is obviously down to the increased participation this year and popularity of the event. We are truly delighted that we will now be showcasing the finest young Irish designers in Ireland’s biggest venue, all of which has been made possible by the support or our sponsor Bank of Ireland!’
