Alternative Activities for Arthur’s Day

If you don’t want to go to the pub on September 26th you could celebrate…

World Maritime Day: Put on a life jacket and watch Titanic.

Dublin Theatre Festival: First preview for Brecht & Weill’s The Threepenny Opera, at The Gate Theatre*. The musical play without which we wouldn’t have Cabaret, Chicago, Evita etc.

New Ross Piano Festival: Watch 20 young piano students play the grand piano for sheer fun!

Olivia Newton John’s Birthday: Watch Grease for the 100th time.

Dunshaughlin Harvest Festival: Take part in their intriguingly named Blackboard Ramblings.

Tape your favourite soap for a week and watch the omnibus you have created.

Bord Gais Energy Theatre : Get tickets to Heartbeat of Home, the latest offering from the Riverdance producers, and watch a whole new crew of young dancers lepping about on stage.

Linda Hamilton’s Birthday: Watch Terminator and Terminator 2 back to back.

T.S. Eliot’s birthday: Cat owners could settle down with your furry friend and read them Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats.

And Finally…

Brew a pot of tea, invite a few friends over, and solve the world’s problems around the kitchen table (bring biscuits).

What are you going to do?

*The previews for The Threepenny Opera at The Gate on the 26th are sold out 🙂
