Dublin Event Guide (19-12-16 – 25-12-16)

santa-claus-08

Guess who is in town this week? Guess what the main event in Dublin is? Yes, that’s right, it’s Santa!

Ok, so it’s a slow week for most things, but there is some life if you want a break from the mince pies and eggnog. Check out our list below. There’s a good few new movie releases and even a few decent enough gigs. Check out the Long Night of the Short Story on the 21st in the Project. Badly Drawn Boy, Damien Dempsey, Jack L and The Sugarhill Gang all play this week also!

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