Are you a doer, thinker, painter, crafter, put-together-er?

Popular on Irish TV in the 70s and 80s, Bosco is now back to send you into a time warp as you revisit a time when jumpers were woolly and colourful, and people wallpapered every available surface in their homes (and he’s brought Hansel and Gretel with him) in Bosco Presents: A Magical Christmas With Hansel and Gretel. Taking place tomorrow, Sunday, December 18th, in the Pavillion Theatre in Dun Laoghaire, you can expect lots of laughs and fun in one of my most popular puppet shows. Tickets and show times can be found here.

The Phoenix Park is home to one of the most adorable nativity scenes that you are ever likely to see, and it goes ‘live’ today. The crib, located beside the Phoenix Park Visitor Centre, is home to real livestock, donated by farmers as part of Agri Aware – consider it a religious scene meets petting zoo. You will be surrounded by gorgeous animals in the stunning surrounds of the Phoenix Park, an oasis in the middle of Dublin city, a sprawling urban park unlike any other. There will be carol singing Kylemore College in Ballyfermot, and the Wood Turners Guild from Castleknock College will be on hand demonstrating wood-turning at Ashtown Castle. Festivities take place today and tomorrow from 9:30am to 3:30pm.
