With Tarantino’s much-heralded ninth film being released next week, it’s a great excuse to delve into his cinematic history and emerge with a belter of a costume for tonight’s Lighthouse shindig. With arguably more characters available for women than men, you can take your pick of some all-time greats before settling in to re-enjoy the classic Pulp Fiction.

Thrift shopping is always a great shout for a Saturday morning activity, and some great company, tunes and treats makes it even better. The ladies at Sustainable Fashion Dublin are absolutely killing it right now on the Irish fashion scene, and their regular events are a great way to get involved. This week’s SwapShop includes a discussion on ‘The Joy of the Thrift’ with Grace Collier of Limerick’s Spice Vintage — sure to be some great insights.

All weekend: Indulge at Eatyard’s Wine & Cheese Festival

weekend
Eatyard Wine and Cheese Festival 2019

It’s a festival full of wine and cheese. Do I really need to say more?

With plenty of talks and Q+A’s happening around the venue, there will also be enough wine and cheese to satisfy even the biggest cravings.
