Homebeat – Carriages & Maria Somerville – Friday 4th July 2014

Chancery Lane was very unexpectedly shut down two weeks ago – one of those situations where the landlord comes in and changes the locks without any notice. A damn shame that another one of Dublin’s small independent venues has been lost.

It meant that all the shows that were booked in for the next month had to find other venues, so when Emmet from Homebeat asked us if we would host the Carriages Dublin tour date, we of course said yes. Homebeat normally put on intimate gigs in peoples living rooms, the odd time they branch out to established venues but always keep the vibe intimate and atmospheric. Looking forward to it.

LASA – Legal Advice Service for the Arts


Brenda Tobin approached us a couple of months ago with an idea she had been mulling over for a while…..how to offer artists and creative types, the legal advice on their work that they would normally be unable to afford. She came up with a drop-in clinic concept that will be held tuesday april 1st in the Fumbally, 8 – 11am.




Are you an artist, writer, designer or freelance creative?


Do you know how to protect your creative work and ensure that you get paid for it?


Do you have any questions about how to protect your work that you’d like a specialist lawyer to answer?

You may want some help writing a letter or you’d like an opinion on a contract from a publisher or a distributor, a software development or a freelance contract. You may be setting up a business and need some guidance on branding or protecting your ideas or you may have a question about using other copyright material in your own creative work?

Brenda worked as a solicitor in RTE for 9 years and before that worked in a large London law firm running an advice service for creators. 

Come along, have a coffee…maybe a slice of cake and go home with some legal advice.


€20 for 15 minutes one to one. No booking required, just turn up.

Unicorn With a Cape Nov 28th 2013


On one of those beautiful sunny evenings during the heatwave in June of this year I attended a performance in an unassuming venue in Ballydehob in West Cork. It changed the way I look at men and women, and what makes us men and women, and what makes us different as men and women.


This is an incredible story.


Having lived as a straight woman, lesbian, transgendered, transsexual gay male, transsexual straight male and finally genderless, Marcus Magdalena will bring an often controversial topic to the forefront. Augmented by experiences of addiction, homelessness and depression, Marcus Magdalena’s story, Unicorn with a Cape, is a theatrical medium of advocacy for the rights of all.


Each of us IS the power of impact, whether through fear or love, as an individual or a community. And, there comes an instant, where the moment goes past the point of choice, directly to the truth of instinct – to the place of who and what we really are.

This is a real story, a real life story……of a Unicorn, and their cape.

Pawel Grudzien every Wednesday

Beautiful music by Pawel Grudzien every wednesday at 10am



Paweł is a classically trained pianist and composer. He currently studies jazz under a New York piano legend Dave Frank, himself a prominent student of Lennie Tristano.
He explores many avenues and styles of piano performance, playing his own original pieces as well as taking from the rich tradition of the twentieth century jazz and film music. His compositions are born through meditation and are mostly improvised – by tapping into the endless flow of music within he creates one of a kind, unique pieces and the act of playing becomes a meditation itself.

Finishing School Oct 22nd

Gill & MacMillan and LeCool have teamed up to present a series of launches of some really great new Irish publications.
