Tenx9 in Belfast January 16, 2019 'Pets'

We are delighted to bring in the new year in our annual partnership with the delicious folks from the Out to Lunch festival. The theme for Tenx9 at OTL 2019 is ‘Pets’. Yup, pets. Love them, hate them. Sometimes we never want them, sometimes we couldn’t’ do without them. Some of us have been the Teacher’s Pet, some of us have engaged in (ahem) heavy petting.

Tenx9 September 2018 Comedy Fundraiser

We are thrilled to invite you to our annual Tenx9 fundraiser. Every September, we have a night of some of the funny stories from Tenx9 in the past year. Expect stories about vomit; stories about sex; stories about pure scunderedness; stories about small misunderstandings grown horribly big. Expect wonder! 

We'll have raffles, and prizes, and some guest appearances. We never charge for Tenx9, so if you have some cash to bring, we'd really appreciate it, as it'll keep the podcast, and rent, and equipment ticking along for many a Tenx9 evening!

We all know it - that feeling of being foreign. Maybe you're in an actual foreign country, or maybe you're in your own family and suddenly think Who ARE these people? Maybe you had a foreigner stay with you and had an experience of seeing something as if it was for the first time. Or maybe you really were the only person not wearing Lederhosen at a community festival.
