Our favourite day of the month is nearly upon us! That’s right, Feel Good Friday returns this week, May 25th, for the 2018 edition and its set to be an absolute cracker!
What’s happening?

We are delighted to team up with the incredibly talented team at Music Generation this Feel Good Friday to be a part of MayHUM. The crew have put together a stellar line-up of events for this coming Feel Good Friday, May 25th, with “Random Acts of MayHUM” taking place throughout the day! You’ll see these talented performers popping up across the city from 12pm onwards; everywhere from the Kino to the English Market and there’s even a FREE lunchtime concert featuring young pianists and flautists in the Crawford Art Gallery from 1.10pm.

The Black Ash park and ride service is still free of charge  from 12pm and the four hours parking for the price of two between 12pm and 6pm in North Main Street and Paul Street carparks is still running so use this as an incentive to encourage customers into the city centre and shop with you! 
Get involved!

We would love for you to take part in Feel Good Friday either by running an exclusive Feel Good Friday offer/promotion or better again, host your own Feel Good Friday event! We want you to challenge yourselves and think outside the box - give your customers an experience that they wouldn't get any other day of the month. 

If you have an exclusive offer you would like to run to celebrate Feel Good Friday or have an event taking place that day and would like details to be included within the Feel Good Friday promotions, please email Sarah at sarahjcbennett@gmail.com.

** If you are promoting your Feel Good Friday events/promotions online or instore we ask that you please include the FGF logo to ensure consistency. **

What is Feel Good Friday?
For those of you who don’t know – (although you should!) – Feel Good Friday is an initiative led by Cork Business Association, Cork Chamber and Cork City Council which sees retailers and businesses in the city centre come together to host a series of events on the last Friday of every month. There will be a festival-like atmosphere in the city, with live music and entertainment, free finger food, late openings, special offers, drinks specials and lots of family fun. Cork City is a really unique shopping destination. Everything is within walking distance and it’s a lively and family friendly place to shop, dine and meet.

The idea behind Feel Good Friday is to reintroduce shoppers in Cork to the fun of shopping in the heart of their City. The last Friday of the month also coincides with pay day for many, so people want something to do on that day – and we’re making sure Cork City Centre is top of their mind!
