FESTIVAL: Mozart Festival at Triskel
Join the Triskel Arts Centre this Easter for a wonderful celebration of some of Mozart’s most loved and treasured compositions. This two-concert series will feature his much-loved Piano Concerto in D minor K.466, his joyful Piano Concerto in A major K.414 alongside his beautiful Concerto for flute and harp. All three concertos have been arranged for soloists and string quartet thus making this a rare opportunity to hear Mozart’s celebrated concertos in a more intimate and personal way.

EASTER: Cadbury Show You Care, Hide It in aid of Barnardos
The Cadbury Easter Egg Hide in Merrion Square was always a highlight of the Easter weekend and a very important fundraiser for Barnardos. Due to Covid-19 restrictions this year the event won’t go ahead.
Instead, on Easter Saturday, 3rd April 2021, Cadbury want as many people as possible to hide a Cadbury Easter Egg for a loved one. Take a snap of your best hiding place and upload it to social media tagging @CadburyIreland and using #ShowYouCareHideIt. Anyone who takes part is also encouraged to text HIDEIT to 50300 to donate €4 to Barnardos. For every donation made on Easter Saturday, Cadbury will match it. And everyone who shares snaps of their donation and Cadbury Easter Egg hiding place using #ShowYouCareHideIt, will be in with a chance of winning a Cadbury hamper full of Easter goodies for your household.
We hope you have a lovely Easter!
