It’s cold out there – wrap up your plans with this weekend’s What’s On

Days like today should be spent in front of the fire – but, if that’s just a tad too quiet for you, there’s plenty going on in Dublin this weekend too. I’d love to say that the days of outdoor events featured in What’s On are over for another winter, but that’s not true – some things just look better in the cold night air, and Wild Lights at Dublin Zoo is definitely one of them. But if the cold is truly getting you down, there’s plenty of good, warm activities too – namely, movies, music and shopping. Happy weekend from IMAGE!


All weekend: Be dazzled at Wild Lights at Dublin Zoo

Back by popular demand, it looks as though Wild Lights will be a permanent fixture in Dublin’s winter calendar. And with good reason too; the dazzling lights and vivid colours have made it the perfect spot for a night with the kids, a date or even just a solo evening stroll. Tickets are notoriously fast-selling, so get yours now.

 

Saturday: Come Together at the Dublin Beatles Festival

If you’re a hardcore Beatles fan (which is basically everyone), then Saturday will be heaven for you in Workman’s on the quays. Kicking off with a stage play of When the Beatles Came to Dublin, followed by a Beatles table quiz and a tribute band concert, the day celebrates the 55th anniversary of the iconic band visiting Ireland’s capital.

 

All weekend: Watch and laugh at Some Like It Hot at the Lighthouse

All week long, the Lighthouse in Smithfield will be screening the classic Some Like It Hot, fully restored in all its glory. Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis and the incomparable Marilyn Monroe. What more could you want?

Sunday: Get your glad rags at the November Bernard Shaw Flea Market

Always a good shout for those in need of new threads, the Bernard Shaw flea market is one of the best in the city for Sunday lunchtime browsing. Everything from vinyl records to local art to plenty of vintage clothing, in one of the coolest venues in Dublin.
