As always this weekend is a hot bed of activity in Dublin with tonnes of events to check out. Read on for our top picks for the weekend.

Dave Gorman - Gets Straight To The Point* (The Powerpoint*)

Acclaimed comic Dave Gorman comes to Vicar Street this Friday with his first live show in over three years. The veteran comic delivers his own unique brand of comedy with the aid of a Powerpoint Presentation. A far cry from the mundane Powerpoint Presentations we have become accustomed to, the award winning performer transforms the seemingly mundane into hysteria. A slick and clever show, not to be missed! Tickets cost €28 and can be purchased here.


Qigong on the Rooftop

Qigong is traditionally viewed as a practice to cultivate and balance chi. Participants are sure to feel the benefits of the ancient mediation in a 30-minute session held on the roof garden (weather permitting - otherwise indoors in the third floor lobby) of the Chester Beatty Library this Saturday. Enjoy views of Dublin Castle and the city skyline while feeling the benefits of this ancient meditation. These are drop-in sessions and do not require booking. Suitable for all ages.


Fusion Sunday – World Culture Market

Fusion Sundays World Culture Market is an eclectic melting pot (quite literally!) of smells, colours and tastes in Dublin’s Newmarket Square. The fare on offer ranges from Japanese-style burgers to Arabic mint tea served in a Moroccan tent to delicious Indian Bhajis. Also on view will be a range of arts and crafts from all corners of the globe. There will also be a laughter yoga session, activities for kids and several workshops running throughout the day. Live music gives the market an authentic and lively ambience, making Fusion Sundays a family event not to be missed.


French Food Fair on the Square

'French Food Fair on The Square' will take place on Saturday 11th of October from 10am to 6pm at the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland, no. 63 Merrion Square Dublin 2. The crème-de-la-crème of Irish-based French food producers will bring a taste of Paris to the streets of Dublin. Wine, cheese, breads, chocolate, jugglers, face painters and more. A fantastic day out for the whole family.


The Allergy and Free From Expo 

Are you part of the 25% of the Irish population suffering from an allergy? Then check out The Allergy & Free From Expo this weekend. It's Ireland's largest consumer exhibition for people suffering from allergies, intolerances or leading a free-from life. The Free From Expos will deliver information and advice, along with seminars, cookery demonstrations and a showcase of the best Free From suppliers. It's taking place in the RDS, Dublin on October 11th & 12th.
