Dublin Event Guide (8-08-16 – 14-08-16)

2318

How is everyone doing? All well, I hope? So, what’s in store for this week then…

A few new plays with the big one being Observe the Sons… in the Abbey. There’s also Inishfallen Fare Thee Well in the New Theatre and the return of Fringe favourite Charolais in the Viking. Special mention for a free version of Measure for Measure at Dublin Castle.

There’s a Blues, Roots and Brass Festival at Whelan’s, there’s the Big Grill at Herbert Park. The Kilkenny Arts Festival is in full swing and I’m beginning to regret not planning a trip. Still time I guess…

Gigs of the week include Thundercat and Everything Shook.
