Dublin hosts Beatles festival
Date Posted: 29/10/14
Few bands can hold a candle to the iconic Beatles and the Fab Four will soon be celebrated in Dublin as part of the 51st anniversary of their only performance in the city.
Known as the Dublin Beatles Festival, this unique three-day event sees thousands of visitors flock to the city - by car, bike or even yellow submarine - in order to relive the days when Paul, John, George and Ringo made beautiful music together.
Kicking off with Fab Friday on November 7th, the extravaganza starts with a special Beatles Show at 7:30pm that includes the short play Death and The Beatles Fan, as well as music from Dundee-based band Revolver. Participants will also be invited to a free discussion over at the Oval Bar, where John Lennon and Ringo Starr enjoyed a pint together in 1963.
Sadie Saturday kicks off with a Beatles Table Quiz at the Workman's Club, where The Newspaper Taxi Men will take to the stage later on in the evening to play through a number of the old favourites.
Strawberry Sunday, the final day of the festival, will see participants flocking to witness a free screening of The Rutles - All You Need is Cash, with the Festival Finale Show will see tribute bands Beatles for Sale and The Rockets emulate their heroes.
All this and more will be taking place across the weekend of November 7th, and a €50 ticket allows you to purchase an all-access pass to all events except the Beatles quiz, which is charged at €40 for a group of four.
If you fancy A Hard Day's Night on the town at this amazing festival then grab a Ticket To Ride across to Dublin in your Yellow Submarine because it's going to be a Helter Skelter of a weekend.
