DRACULA IN DUBLIN

Chat It's Fate - - Chats it's fate | Haunted happenings -

If you’re into vam­pire lore, then head to Dublin for the fab­u­lous Bram Stoker Fes­ti­val from 26 to 29 Oc­to­ber. Visi­tors dress like char­ac­ters from the au­thor’s iconic Gothic novel Dracula - such as prim Mina Harker or wan­ton Lucy Westenra - or wear Hal­lowe'en out­fits to cel­e­brate the sea­son. When dark­ness falls, a car­ni­val takes to the streets, with ghosts and ghouls, drum­mers, dancers, and hours of das­tardly fun.

Acts in the theatres and on the streets in­clude fire-eaters, jug­glers, ac­ro­bats, con­tor­tion­ists and ma­gi­cians. Ac­tors play dark and macabre roles in a va­ri­ety of haunt­ing plays. There's a wide range of ter­ri­fy­ing movies show­ing in lo­ca­tions across the city, and for young­sters who are tucked up in bed at night, there are lots of day­time ac­tiv­i­ties too - fair­ground rides, stalls, street per­form­ers, and fancy dress. With four nights of blood-cur­dling ex­cite­ment ahead, take a look at the sched­ule at bram­stok­er­fes­ti­val.com
