So the ghosts and ghouls are back in their box for another year, and we’re left facing into the run up to… well, I won’t say it yet, but you know what the next holiday season is, don’t you? The main things of interest for me this week would be in the gigs below, with Volcano Choir and Glenn Jones both essential viewing! See if anything below tickles your fancy.
If you’re looking for a little excitement in your life, there’s always the Dublin Burlesque Festival from Nov 7th to 9th.
It’s your last chance to see the Hanging Gardens and Three Penny Opera isn’t much better! There’s new work all over the place, so a few things to explore.
