Fancy some free fun in town this Sunday? Well then head to Temple Bar for the last day of the Summer Sensational.
The main fun will be happening in Meeting House Square where they’ll be rolling out the green carpet (yes, the grassy sort!) so bring your picnic blanket and your shades (no harm being optimistic!) and get ready for :
So Friday is almost upon us and it’s set to be a busy day at Summer Sensational in Temple Bar. Here’s the rough scheme of things for today:
Some cherry-picked musical highlights of the day:
Play with Music at The Contemporary Music Centre
The CMC are hosting a range of installations by multimedia students from around Ireland. Bring the little ones (of 4+) and get creative with the sounds, sights and gadgets at CMC between 1 and 4pm. More info available here.
A Musical Menu at The Queen of Tarts
A delicious slice of cake in one of the yummiest places in town with a string trio on the side? Fancy that? Well then head for The Queen of Tarts on Cow’s Lane at 3pm.
Julie Feeney & Tarab at Meeting House Square
The gorgeous poppy sounds of Galway girl Julie Feeney followed by a lively mix of jazz and traditional music from across Europe in the form of Tarab at Meeting House Square at 7pm. It’s free but you better book your tickets here quickly!
Dirty Dancing – Movies on the Square
What better way to round up a musical day in Temple Bar than with this 80′s classic. Get ready to dance in the aisles (well, the street I guess) and sing along. Tickets are going faster than you can say “no-one leaves Baby in the corner” so get in touch with TBCT now! Starts at 10.30pm.
I was lucky to happen upon this live on the telly at the weekend. This version of “Waterloo Sunset” is one of the most played songs on my iPod , I love it. Here they are doing said tune and “Days” – make sure you wait for the encore
Absolutely love the idea of FullCodePress. Get a team together and build a website for a charity in 24 hours for free. If I don’t do something like that between now and this time next year, I’ll certainly get involved next June. Progress pics here. Thanks Stu.
Congrats to the team from my beloved BSc in Multimedia in DCU who scooped the overall prize at the Digital Hub’s ‘Best in Show‘ competition with their series of short films for the Pashli charity.
Come along and join the Pride Parade on Saturday at 2 from the Garden of Remembrance – it’s always spectacular!
Or if your more enticed by things of a dead nature there’s a zombie walk happening at the same time from Stephen’s Green. Get the full info here.
Console’s annual benefit gig is on at the NCH next weekend. Jack L, Maynooth Gospel Choir and Acabella doing the honours. What’s stopping you?!
