Celebrations are in order for much-loved Dublin music venue Workman's who turns 10 years old today. Not the birthday or even the year they were hoping for, they're making the most of a rather miserable situation - already looking ahead to Workman's 10+1 and promising that are still plenty of good things yet to come.

Thanking Dubliners for their continued love and support over the past decade, the team spoke from the heart, sharing some lovely words on social media.

'It's been an absolute honour and a privilege to have become a part of the music and arts scene in Ireland. We've had the pleasure of having some of the best and most talented home grown and international acts play here as well as countless art exhibitions, drama, comedy, spoken word and everything else that can fit on a stage.'

Saying that they had a full year of events planned to mark the milestone, according to staff 'Workman's 10 was going to be a celebration of the old and new'... with as many great shows that they could possibly squeeze into one year. Alas, this was not to be but they fully intend on rescheduling all events for further down the line.

'As soon we can all pack into rooms together again we'll get the party hats out and put on some shows. Workman's 10+1 sounds good!'

Today is our 10th birthday!! We first opened our doors on September 9th 2010 in the height of a recession, against the odds with a love of music and art guiding our every move. Halves were the first band to play a public show here supporting Pivot on opening night and since then we've never looked back. It's been an absolute honour and a privilege to have become a part of the music and arts scene in Ireland. We've had the pleasure of having some of the best and most talented home grown and international acts play here and well as countless art exhibitions, drama, comedy, spoken word and everything else that can fit on a stage. We had a full year of events planned this year to mark this milestone. 'WORKMANS10' was going to be a celebration of the old and new with as many great shows as we could squeeze in to one short year, but alas is was not to be... this year. We do fully intend however on moving the celebrations down the line and as soon as we can all pack in to rooms together again we'll get the party hats out and put on some shows. WORKMANS10+1 sounds good! From the bottom of our hearts we'd like to thank everyone who has been on this amazing journey with us... To everyone who has come to a show here, a clubnight here, played here, danced here, had a pint here, DJ'd here, ate here, laughed here, sang here, moshed here, made friends here, found love here, displayed art here, did an encore here, promoted gigs here, made videos here, clapped along here, read a poem here, did a review here, took pictures here, and most importantly loved music and loved art here, thank you, thank you all!! We are you, you are us WE ARE WORKMANS xxx Here's to 10 more 🎶
