Saturday 27th August: Kilmainham Arts Festival
Wurm im Apfel is programming a spoken word event for this year's Kilmainham Arts Festival.
As ever, we need a bit of money to help pay out-of-pocket expenses. Buy a strip of raffle tickets here to be in with a chance to win books, CDs, book tokens, or even a commissioned poem.
This free community arts festival aims to offer art for all tastes, all ages: there's music, dance, visual and plastic arts, drama and children's events.
You can find out more here. But as for us...
