Dublin's buzzing this weekend as people finally emerge from the January slump. So take a look at our pick of the best events over the weekend...
Jazz Night at House
This is the perfect way to ease yourself into the weekend; a snazzy evening of jazz music tonight in House on Leeson Street from 6-9pm. Music, great cocktails, and gorgeous surroundings sound like a dreamy Thursday evening.
Prepare for belly-laughs and a whopping dose of satire as comedian and impersonator Oliver Callan takes to the Bord Gais Energy Theatre this Friday night. Featuring an array of characters across the worlds of sport, politics and entertainment, Callan's live show follows on from the rip-roaring success of his prime time television and radio shows. The creator of Nob Nation performs an acerbic mix of satire and stand-up comedy on stage, showcasing razor-sharp topicality and featuring guest performances and live music.
The Bug & Flowdan
The Bug's innovate blend of rap, blues and hip-hop is as distinctive as it is popular amongst music fans of all genres. A well-known collaborator, it makes sense that his most recent tour is entwined with Flowdan, giving the audience a real feel of how his album translates to live music. The energetic pair will perform together live to what will be a full Twisted Pepper on Friday night, and this is not to be missed.
A huge hit Stateside but relatively unknown here in Ireland, Celtic Woman have become a permanent fixture on US television. Fans across the globe who are eager to catch the celebration tour will be treated to a brand-new live show which features elaborate and fresh set designs, brand new costumes, and breathtaking choreography. This show in the 3arena this Saturday will feature a musical selection encompassing Irish classics, contemporary standards and classical favourites.
Young Vic Presents Oh My Sweet Land
This play details the lives of those who came from places where the bombs fall day and night. Those who now live in camps and abandoned buildings in Lebanon or Jordan. This urgent and extraordinary play exploring the crisis in Syria through the stories of its two million refugees is brought to The Peacock Theatre, for the first time, by London's award-winning theatre, the Young Vic.
