No point in making yer mouth water and announce or introduce Cherish The Ladies to you as their concert on Wednesday night is absolutely and frightfully sold/ booked out and The Ladies will be playing to a full house! Although there is always hope, and for the hopeful ones we do have a waiting list in case of cancellations! So yeah, this is the little clip for ticket holders and hopeful ones!
If you won’t make it there don’t forget that we have a wonderful afternoon show of harp music, story and song on this Thursday with Cormac De Barra and Glynnis Casson at 2pm! Great way of breaking the day and doing something rather unusual with your Thursday afternoon, and if you look into the programme, a magic kind of afternoon The Harp That Once promises! Good news for the lovers of their creature comforts: special pre or post show deal for ticket holders - enjoy a delicious tea or coffee and cake for only 2.50Euro. I certainly would not mind that in the slightest, especially that time of the day!
Maybe see you there,

Worry not, there is a mini message in all that too!
And yes, absolutely, if you are on top of the world this morning, you too pause here, take about 3 minutes, click on the link below and draw a stickman and see what happens…

Culture Night is done and dusted, pity I missed most of the workshops, I saw some amazing vintage hair-bands being done, damn, but somehow I got chatting to people and it slipped my mind to join the girls. DJ-ing Paul Cunningham got the teenagers going, turning records like in the olden days and testing the newest of the new equipment to be a shock jock as well. DJ Sweet Cup aka our Natalia took over from there, sweetly, gently, and people just relaxed into the surroundings, you know, when you kind of should go home but then again you don’t really want and need to.
The fashion show was over far too quickly for my liking, I had just grabbed a seat and ended it was, I had not realized that Rock&Roll Tea Party Co and Dirty Fabulous may be new aspiring businesses with a small range of products yet, lets wish them all the best and good luck on their way to success!
Regarding Audrey’s conversation with Philip Delamare I heard she got involved in a rather lively discussion about art and carpets in general, but it became more transparent to some how dimensions are perceived, what art tutors hold dear and important but it might not really matter in the end, how to see objects with one eye and what Audrey’s two and a half dimensions may mean to her. Anybody who heard what Bayard Eade as the title of her current work means, please feel free to comment here, I’d rather gladly know! Otherwise there is one more chance to get close to the work of Tracy Hanna and Audrey Reynolds as The Docks’ curator Alice Lyons will lead a walk through the galleries for us to gain insight in the exhibitions in an informal and friendly setting on the 20th of October at 2pm, and everyone is more than welcome and admission is free.
The absolute highlight of this years’ Culture Night for me is the photo exhibition in the Jury Room Café, shots of outstanding quality presented in a very professional manner, it is hard to believe that this work is coming from so to speak amateurs, a lot of those pictures deserve to be in the limelight, well, in my humble opinion at least! Check it out for yourself and let me know what you think! If you are interested in photography yourself it might be worth to look even into joining the Boyle Camera Club, http://boylecameraclub123.blogspot.com/ they are meeting once a month for a slide show of their work and use Flickr as a website for tips and tricks on the trade, to share and jury the shots amongst themselves and learn from one another hands on. Gosh, I am thinking of joining them myself right now!
I didn’t stay on for the life drawing workshop and the saxophonist as I had a hard days’ work ahead of me, but anybody who did please let us know how that went! Its your turn now, comment, let us know, share what you got out of and thought of our Culture Night!
