Storm Lorenzo has passed, so it’s time to get ready for the weekend

Storm Lorenzo has passed, so it’s time to get ready for the weekend

Excuse the pun but I think we can all agree that so-called Storm Lorenzo was a damp squib. While we may have had to endure a few days of nasty weather, it was no worse than our usual cheery autumns. But now that it’s over, it does mean that we’re more excited than ever to embrace the weekend. Need to know what’s on? We’ve got you covered. Happy weekend from IMAGE!


Saturday and Sunday: Get ready for the new arrival with the Pregnancy and Baby Fair at the RDS

If you have a little one on the way, or one has just arrived, then no doubt you’re being bombarded by baby stuff at every turn. The Pregnancy and Baby Fair will help to make sense of it all, and may give you some support where you really need it. Prams, cots, clothing, feeding, and all the little incidentals are covered, so if you’re feeling overwhelmed, this is the place to start. Tickets from €15.19

 

Friday: Head to opening night at the Nightmare Realm to gear up for Halloween

We’re into October now people, which means it is officially spooky season. Get ready for pumpkins, ghosts and guilt-free chocolate bingeing galore, and not just for the kids. The Nightmare Realm is definitely a Halloween activity best left to the adults, but it is one of the most craic-filled things you can do this time of year, and it’s officially opening tonight at the RDS. Tickets from €23.

 

On Sunday: Get some culture at IndieCork 2019

Eight days of the best independent film and music that Cork has to offer — sound good? It definitely does to us. Get out of Dublin this weekend and say hello to new surroundings in the best way possible at IndieCork, featuring great Irish talent across the board. There’s plenty in the lineup for every age and taste, dealing with war, family, temptation, drugs, music and talking dogs (that one’s for the kids). Tickets for each showing from €7 before 5 pm or €10 thereafter.
