Dublin Event Guide (12-12-16 – 18-12-16)

event_1600_x_391

A couple of big openings with the world premiere of Big the Musical in the Bord Gais Theatre! There’s also Anna Karenina at the Abbey, both of which are quite exciting!

There’s also the next Star Wars movie with Rogue One being released this week. Darth Vader is back!

The gigs aren’t amazing this week, and expect it to be relatively quiet over the next few weeks. The Bowery has its biggest gig to date with Badly Drawn Boy taking to the stage on Sunday night. There’s also a number of home coming gigs such as Le Galaxie, Enemies and more.

The IMMA Collection Freud Project is a must see! There’s also a new Hughie O’Donoghue exhibition at the Oliver Sears gallery.
