OSD Digital Agency have been delighted to be working with the freakishly exciting ‘Bram Stoker Festival’. So if you find yourself in Dublin this Bank Holiday weekend and looking for some blood thirsty Halloween fun, make sure to check it out.
You can’t really miss it – there’s events literally across the entire city.
Catch “The Curse of Styria” at the Screen Cinema on Friday (24th) at 6 pm and head across to Christ Church Cathedral at 8pm for a screening of the silent film “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari “which is musically accompanied by Dublin based musician 3epkano. To finish your night off, head to the uber cool Conrad Dublin Hotel for a fright night of craft beer, gothic interactions and unearthly happenings until witching hour.
On Saturday (25th) the skies will be zip-wired by ghouls, zombies and vampires at the VamWire event from 10 am – 5pm at Wolftone Square. At 2 pm nip to Grafton Street/Georges Street to watch Goths take on Zombies for the ultimate Halloween Dance off! And to finish off Saturday night in style, get to the Irish Museum of Modern Art for the Shapeshifters Ball where the electronica music filled Baroque Chapel heads a line-up of East India Youths, DJs Tim Sheridan and Alex Do as well as Young Fathers.
If you’re hungry for more on Sunday (25th) head out to the Gothic Market at Smithfield Square for a Gothic edition of the Smithfield Market with live bands, performers, underground cinema screenings and the odd Bloody Mary in between to keep you going. At 4 pm swing across the Meeting House Square for some sing along at the Goth Karaoke and a screening of “The Lost Boys” at 6pm followed by an outdoor standing “concert” of “The Cure in Orange” at 8.30pm.
Monday (26th) could kick off with Near Gone by Two Destination Language at the New Theatre in Temple Bar – a performance delivered in English and Bulgarian with a mix of gypsy-inspired music, hundreds of fresh flowers and a storm of emotion. At 2 pm the Brooks Hotel Cinema screens the 1946 gothic fairytale of “La Belle et la Bete” by Jean Cocteau, as well as “Orpheé” at 4 pm. The final Festival Club Night will take place at the Generator in Smithfield.
