BramStoker

From 26th – 28th October, Dublin City will celebrate the life, work and legacy of Dublin horror novelist Bram Stoker and his gothic novel ‘Dracula’.

The three-day festival will peel back the layers of the city to reveal Stoker’s Dublin. The streets will come alive with free pop-up performances of spine-chilling street theatre and sinister sounds, a city-wide Vampire Hunt for families and friends, spooky movies in the open-air, blood curdling literary happenings, terrifying theatre, haunted walking tours and a very special event will take place in the spectacular surrounds of Dublin Castle.

Whether you’re a resident vampire or visiting from further afield, the Bram Stoker Festival 2013 has something for everyone in its spooktacular programme of events!

It’s been a long week but we have reached our destination….all abroad for the weekend and it’s going to be a long one. Tis the season of all things garish and goulish….Halloween. Not my favourite of the seasons but you gotta love the bank holiday and cute kids customes….little pumpkins…..where were they when I was young? There was either white sheet or black bin liners! So this weekend eat, drink and be scary but above all enjoy!

Happy Flyday.

“Tis now the very witching time of night, When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out Contagion to this world.” [William Shakespeare]

“Shadows of a thousand years rise again unseen, Voices whisper in the trees, “Tonight is Halloween!”” [Dexter Kozen]

“Ghosts, like ladies, never speak till spoke to.” [Richard Harris Barham]

“There is something haunting in the light of the moon; it has all the dispassionateness of a disembodied soul, and something of its inconceivable mystery.” [Joseph Conrad]

Things to make you smile…

Samhain, Haunted Forest & Fireworks
Date: 24 October 2010
Venue: Marlay Park
Time: 5.00pm – 9.00pm

Visit Marlay Park in your Halloween costume for a spooky walk through the haunted forest! Made bigger and better for 2010 the haunted woods are not for the faint hearted with spooky characters, scary noises, the eerie fog and strange sights.

The haunted trail through the woods will be open from 5pm to 9pm so visitors can enjoy the spooky woods in their own time either before or after the fireworks.

One of the highlights of the evening is Marlay Parks own special fireworks display which launches into the night sky at 7.00pm – this can be viewed from the fireworks viewing area is in front of Marlay House.

The observance of Halloween, which dates from the dark ages, has long been associated with thoughts of witches, ghosts, devils and hobgoblins. Today, many of the young and “young-at-heart” take a more light-hearted approach and the colourful festival has become family-oriented celebration.

Entry into the haunted woods will close from 6.45 until approx 7.15 to ensure the woods are empty for the fireworks display.

The walk is approx 1.2km long on and all on tarmac paths.

The fireworks display is weather dependant – please check the DLR Events website and/or the DLR events Facebook page for updates on the day.

Well tis the season for trick or treating and dressing up and finding your inner child. Am not a huge fan of Halloween myself – think it is the scary bangers and the fact I wasn’t that creative as a child and there’s only so much you can do with black bin bags, white sheets and cereal packs! I am partial to pretty fireworks and bonfires (under supervision of course) but would happily give this holiday a miss – bah humbug!

Think this cartoon says it all!
