THEATRE: Comfort and Joy: A Winter Celebration

The weather outside is frightful, but Axis Ballymun have got something delightful for you: an evening of poetry, songs, and seasonal stories. Join Then This Theatre as they gather some of their most talented friends to celebrate and give thanks for the many good things we share. And even more heart warming? Dublin City Council have sponsored tickets for this wonderful show for Services, Nursing Homes & Care homes in the Dublin City Council area. Joy abound!

EXHIBITON: Cork 1920 – The Burning of a City. 

St Peters has reopened to visitors. And it is well worth a visit for those in Cork city this week. Their current exhibition, Cork 1920 – The Burning of a City, employs thought-provoking stories, archival material, historic photographs and compelling witness statements to shine a spotlight on the city’s past. A perfect anecdote to the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping….
