Dublin Event Guide (14-12-15 – 20-12-15)

Wait, I feel a disturbance in the force, is there some, strange film out this week? Yes, this is the week some people have been looking forward to for about a year. If you don’t have your tickets already, you’ll probably get to see The Force Awakens in about two months time! Otherwise, there’s lots to see and do around the city. Have a look below…

There’s The Vaccines, Ash, Brad Mehldau, Colm Mac Con Iomaire and Damien Dempsey at the various venues around the city. There’s also a few new things at the theatre, with  Cirque des Rêves and High Heels in Low Places, among others.

Glen

Glen Hansard could be the first Irish person to EGOT. Seriously, it could happen. As everyone knows, the EGOT is the highest achievement known to man, and Glen is already OT’d and has just been nominated for a Grammy. Only an Emmy left? Potentially anyway. We wish him well.
