Bear In Mind returns, this time with talks from MMA fighters to club promoters to yoga instructors.


According to Bear In Mind, they’ve decided to return to begin the next 12 months with some positivity.

“Due to the distressing number of suicides and the steady increase of mental health issues in our society in 2017, we feel it’s best to start off 2018 on a positive realistic note so we are going to give our audience as many practical tips and ways to navigate your happiness so ultimately we can all have a comfortable productive and stress free year.”

On Thursday February 1 from 6pm, a host of speakers will descend on Hangar, Andrew’s Lane for some frank and hopefully uplifting conversations.

Talks will come from MMA fighter Richard Kiely, psychotherapist Amanda Lynch, Rob Kelly and Rob Connolly from Ink Factory, DJ and promoter Jonathan Kiely aka Kaily, yoga instructor Amanda Doyle, plus organiser Pauly Doyle.

All proceeds on the night will also go to Pieta House, which is a charity that you can help in a number of ways.

“Drop in, take a load off, throw whatever you can afford in the bucket, chill out and let us help you get your head right for 2018 and the foreseeable future.”
