What is Notions?

It's a new queer club night in Waterford to let your freak flag fly.

It's a space of freedom, where you can wear your maddest rigout, dance like everyones watching, see some human art displays and just have a big aul play!

It's a place of positivity and queerness.

Our aim is to make everyone feel safe enough to get freaky and fun and fecking wild!

This version of Notions was filled with vinyl DJs spinning the decks, drag queens, hula-hoop, GoGo dancing, experimental film and live painting.



Will Notions happen again?

Notions is happening twice every year, with different editions every time! Keep your eyes peeled for the Samhain edition 👽

Will Notions be similar every time?

While every Alien:Nation event will be true to the same core values, we are committed to keeping things creative and expanding the collaboration network with local artists.
