January is finally over!!! Loads of deadly things happening in Dublin this weekend and Snapchat Star James Kavanagh has picked the best 5! 

1) Hamlet @ The Bord Gais Feb 2nd - Feb 4th 

I believe this is on the syllibus this year, so any students out there - get down to it! Seeing plays in the flesh always helps with exams etc. And also ideal viewing for any Shakespeare lover. More info: http://www.ticketmaster.ie/venueartist/198867/844896?camefrom=CFC_IE_CLI_BGET&brand=ie_gct
2) Dublin Chinese New Year, 28th Jan - 12th Feb
It's the Year of the Fire Rooster! And it's also the 10th anniversary of the Dublin Chinese New Year Festival which takes place from the 28th January - 12th February. Expect two packed weeks of "insightful talks, fun and flavoursome food events, cultural curiosities, thrilling tours and masterful musical performances".

3) Rubberbandits, Saturday @ The Academy 
Never a duo to bore, The Rubberbandits will be taking to the stage in Dublin’s Academy for their first live headline performance in 2017. Expect general outrageousness while also nodding your head and agreeing with almost everything they express views on. More info: http://therubberbandits.com/
4) Mack Fleetwood, Friday @ The Button Factory
It's been 40 years since the release of Fleetwood Mac's iconic album Rumours so, to celebrate, Mack Fleetwood are hosting a big gorge singalong! There'll be lyrics on a big screen for a 2 and a half hour set and sing along to some of the best tracks from the album. "Go Your Own Way", "Dreams", "Don't Stop" to name a few.

Ever thought about writing a kids book? All children’s writers and illustrators are welcome to this information-packed day, new, emerging and established alike. How much do children’s writers get paid? How important are events and social media? What are publishers and agents looking for in 2017 and beyond? Come with questions and leave with answers.
