As the weather begins to change, we’re prone to notions here. Even the slightest increase in Vitamin D gets us all reaching for our phones and diaries and making plans. It’s a beautiful thing.

There’s always the classic options of canal cans or a barbecue, but if you’re craving something a bit more cultured this week, then DCU is the place to be! Their Art and Culture Festival – Anam – is taking place on April 3rd and 4th.

The festival is designed ‘to tap into the buzzing creativity of North Dublin’ and is a two day whirlwind of talks, discussions, dramatic performances, live music, and film. Highlights will include a performance by Delorentos, and a showcase by DCU Student Societies.

Most events are free, but do require booking in advance. The full programme can be found here, and more information is available on the DCU Anam website.
