As darkness descends and time steals the light from day, it is fitting that the Bram Stoker festival returns with its considered fang fare. Highlights include: the world premiere of Whitby by dance artist Colin Dunne which reimagines Stoker’s gothic masterpiece; a screening of Vampyr in St Patrick’s Cathedral with a live score; and Turning Vampire Mixtape with Lisa Hannigan and Saint Sister among the confirmed guests. The Macnas Parade (pictured below) is always a memorable experience.
Whether it’s witches that get you quivering or werewolves that set you shivering, there are plenty of ways to scare yourself silly at this festival. Book your tickets for the event of your choice at their website here.
