We've teamed up with Dublin Gazette to bring you the best events on in Dublin over the coming days.
Vinyl Festival, Kilmainham - Saturday, Sunday & Monday
An immersive festival for music lovers takes place at Kilmainham’s Royal Hospital this weekend. Celebrating the history and legacy of vinyl, its landmark recordings, and groundbreaking labels and studios, VINYL is being billed as a “theatre of the mind”. It will feature specially curated talks, panel discussions, collections, musical performances, pop-up stores, signings and more. The different events will take place across the Royal Hospital’s grounds and infrastructure. Guests include Snow Patrol, Chrissie Hynde, Aslan, Shane McGowan, Bob Geldof and the Undertones. The first festival of its kind anywhere in the world, VINYL will present the people who made the records that would define not just a number of eras but also their respective cultures.
There's a limited number of tickets left here.
Bewley's Jazz Brunch
There's nothing better than having a few bellinis at brunch with your friends and family. Now, Bewley's Grafton Street has launched a brand new brunch experience.
Jazz Brunch features delicious food, signature coffee and tea and live jazz in the beautiful, restored surrounds of the iconic Dublin landmark.
What brunch is complete without a coffee and a cocktail? The decadent cocktail list features the Chocolate Espresso Martini, Bloody Mary, Mimosa and Bellini.
Bewley’s Jazz Brunch Experience is available on Saturday and Sunday from 11am-4pm.
Greg Sestero, The Lighthouse – Saturday
GREG Sestero – one of the main stars of the hilariously, infamously awful film, The Room, and the New York Times best-selling author of The Disaster Artist (about the making of The Room) – will make an appearance at Smithfield’s Lighthouse Cinema for two screenings of his highly-anticipated new movie. The movie, BEST F(R)IENDS, stars Greg alongside enigmatic Tommy Wiseau, based on a series of true-to-life anecdotes from their two decades of shared experiences. It’s described as a unique cinematic saga that has more than a view dark laughs intertwined with mystery and intrigue. Screenings will take place at 4pm and 8pm on Saturday, followed by a Q&A with Greg himself.
Tickets are available now from lighthousecinema.ie.
