Dublin Event Guide (23-1-17 – 29-1-17)

tradfest620250I’m starting to get bored with January, so luckily we’re on the last week! We’re almost at the end of the bleak month with not very much going on. Thankfully, we have a festival in the form of Tradfest from the 25 – 29th Jan, so a good bit to see and do in that!

At the Theatre, the Pillowman returns to the Gaiety,  And Then There Were None is at Smock Alley and The Collector is at the New Theatre.

The IMMA Collection Freud Project is a must see!
