Looking for something to do this weekend? Swap your old dress for something new, take part in a toastie festival, and celebrate books! Happy weekend from IMAGE.
Swap Old For New Here
Come by The Projects Arts Centre in Temple Bar today from 1PM to 4PM and find the dress of your dreams (potentially)! Change Of A Dress is free to attend but people are asked to bring only clean clothes and shoes, kids clothes, accessories and unopened cosmetics or lotions to trade. Oh, and this is a BYOB event (bring your own biscuits): Tea and coffee will be provided by the lovely people at Project. Click here for more info.
Get Your Hands On World-Renowned Art Here
Irish art lovers have the chance to get their hands on 100 pieces of original artwork for €100 – as well as works by Banksy – at Ireland’s premier art fair Art Source, which will be held at the RDS from next weekend, from November 10th-12th. This year’s Art Source sold out in record time and features over 130 contemporary artists and 20 Irish and international galleries gathering together to showcase painting, sculpture, photography, illustration, prints and ceramic art. From cutting-edge contemporary art, realism and portraiture, to abstract art and landscapes, Art Source 2017 will showcase it all in one place and give visitors a fantastic opportunity to meet the artists and to buy directly from them. Admission is €10 adults, €8 OAPs. Children under 16 free only if accompanied by a parent or guardian. Opening times: Friday Nov 10: 11am-9pm, Sat Nov 11: 10am-6pm, Sun Nov 12: 10am-6pm.

Eat All The Toasties Here
Is there anything better than a hot cuppa and a melting toastie? If your answer is no then you should definitely make time to drop by The Harbour Bar in Bray and take part in their toastie festival. The festival takes place throughout the entire weekend where there will be an offering of classic ham and cheese toasties alongside some more adventurous fillings to try and match with whatever’s your favourite tipple. Plus free tea top ups too. Click here for all the cheesy goodness.
