Another busy week in Dublin with a new festival in the form of 10 days in Dublin. We’re all quite excited about another chance to see the wonderful Matthew J Anthony live, featuring the Workhorse’s own Matthew Barks. It’s a special live show that will leave you wondering what just happened, mostly becuase you’re blind folded during the whole thing!

I knOw yoU– IMMA Earlsfort Terrace – 19 April – 1st Sept 2013 – “I knOw yoU is a dynamic exhibition by a new generation of young European artists” or so says the blurb on the new exhibition in IMMA @ NCH (Earlsfort Terrace).
