Bram Stoker Festival 2012

Have you booked your tickets for the Bram Stoker Festival 2012 ?


I’ve booked mine … for the ‘Imagining Bram Stoker Spraoi Spectacle’ that will be happening in the courtyard of Dublin Castle on Sunday October 28th … sounds fun and what’s even better is that tickets for this event is free!

I’ll also be heading along to the ‘The Judges House’ by the Performance Corporation, this event blends sound (the story is told through headphones), and theatrics that I’m sure will create a very spooky atmosphere. There are no booking requirements and the 20 min shows run from Friday October 26th through to Sunday October 28th.

Finally I’ll be popping along to the ‘Life of Bram Stoker Exhibition’ in the Little Museum of Dublin, entry is €5.00 and the exhibition will be running from Thursday October 18th (that was yesterday btw) through to Friday November 30th … so there’s plenty of time to get to see it.

I would really like to see PaperDolls who performed on Culture Night in the Meeting House Square, as they will be presenting ‘A letter to Mina’, which will no doubt be a fabulous, gothic, cabaret style celebration , tickets are €16.00 and the show will run from Friday October 26th to Sunday October 28th at D-Light Studios, Dublin 1.

There are many other events such as readings, plays and walks, so for more information and to book just visit the Bram Stoker Festival website on … and hurry as lots of events are booking /selling out quickly …

“Enter freely and of your own free will..”.
The countdown is on! Just over one week to go until Dublin celebrates
the inaugural Bram Stoker Festival from
Friday 26th  to Sunday 28th October.
