This brand-new partnership will even see the Dame Street theatre renamed to ‘3Olympia Theatre’.
The entertainment industry has had a tough time over the past 18-months, but music remains at the very core of what we do. That’s why we’re so proud to sponsor 3Arena and also why we’re proud to announce another music-focused sponsorship. This new partnership will help provide further support to Ireland’s flourishing music scene and help to rejuvenate the live music industry following the pandemic. Now here’s everything you need to know about the new 3Olympia Theatre…
What Is The Olympia Theatre?
The historical theatre is one of Ireland’s most iconic entertainment venues. Located on Dame Street in Dublin the venue first opened its doors in 1879 but wasn’t known as The Olympia Theatre until 1923. It’s taken many different parties over the years to keep its doors open and the venue running. As a result, the theatre has hosted some of the biggest names in showbiz. From timeless classics such as Charlie Chaplin and Laurel & Hardy to a long list of modern superstars including David Bowie, Radiohead, Blur, Robbie Williams, Hozier, Dermot Kennedy, Lizzo, Adele and let’s not forget the much loved annual Christmas panto!
We know it’s an honour to sponsor this venue and we look forward to welcoming a wide range of global acts for you to enjoy in the new 3Olympia. The investment of this partnership will provide support to the historic venue as it prepares for its reopening and ensure the overall heritage and rich history of the building is preserved for years to come.
