Things To Do In Dublin (07-08-15 – 13-09-15)

Ok Folks, it’s time to get your Fringe on! Yes, the madness is just about to start, with more new productions than is fair or reasonable in a three week period. Cancel everything and explore the list below…

From a music point of view, there’s a good looking show in the NCH next Sunday (and Monday) called Blood and the Moon, with Sam Amidon, Robert Forster and more. There’s also Florence and her Machine in the 3Arena and a few other bits and bobs. Enjoy it…

Update – The Hodges Figgis Book Festival is also worth a mention, with talks and readings from the 11th to the 19th in one of the oldest book shops in Dublin!
