15 Apr Your Culture, Your History, Your Story
Culture Date with Dublin 8 is a new neighbourhood initiative taking place for the first time this Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th May 2017.
The weekend will see a series of special events and activities taking place in the historical and cultural landmarks of Richmond Barracks, Goldenbridge Cemetery, Kilmainham Gaol, the Irish National War Memorial Gardens, the Magazine Fort in the Phoenix Park and IMMA – Irish Museum of Modern Art. Each of these institutions will welcome you to explore the rich heritage, culture and stories that lie just beyond your doorstep.
The weekend highlights include bespoke tours of Kilmainham Gaol, guided tours and family activities in IMMA, a new exhibition launch at Richmond Barracks and the re-opening of Goldenbridge Cemetery. Discover hidden stories and local treasures with guided tours throughout the weekend by Pat Liddy who will help bring this historical area to life.
As part of this initiative, Culture Date with Dublin 8 has partnered with local workplaces to offer free guided tours to their staff on Friday 12th May. This year we are delighted to be working with St James’s Hospital, Guinness Brewery, Heineken Ltd, eir, and Inchicore College.
All events are free to the public but some may require ticket booking to secure your place. Book your tickets early to avoid disappointment. Tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Check out our schedule of events and enjoy the weekend, we hope to see you here.
