Another Week at The Dock, and me still offline…

While Vodafone is currently working on my phone line and very sorry for the inconvenience caused, I am better safe than sorry and just put another whole Dock week into one post for you!

The Classic Film Club took off very well in September, so this months’ film The Quiet Man will probably draw in a good crowd too, especially if its lashing rain like now tomorrow morning again. Just to jog your memory – the club is especially for those of you who are over 55 or retired and would like the chance to see once again some of the old films from years gone by. Membership is free and entitles you to a discounted entry to all film club showings, and the perkiest part: it comes with a complimentary tea or coffee for you! Come along tomorrow, Tuesday the 18th at 11am and enjoy The Quiet Man with us, and have a chat and cuppa with likeminded souls to enjoy a perfect autumn morning in The Dock. And don’t forget to remind your mums and dads, and whoever fits the bill, as they may not read our blog yet and miss a good chance that way!

Next in line is our theatre show Silent on Wednesday night, for the ones of you who bought the Sunday times yesterday check out the culture section, there is a whole double page on your man Pat Kinevane the actor, a charming interview, information on the play. Looks brilliant to me, which of course is a rather subjective statement, but I absolutely made sure I had my tickets booked well in advance! Looks like they have a bit of an unstoppable success thing going on for themselves, shows in 50 Irish venues, 8 European Countries, and 3 US cities, I have to see that for myself! Dare to laugh at despair and gasp at redemption in this brave, bleak, beautiful new production… that is very much down my street! And to make matters even better there is a post show talk with Pat Kinevane which will be facilitated by Marie Finney, Outreach worker with Northwest Simon Community, that should be very interesting as well. Ring the box office on 071 96 50828 for the last remaining tickets; I’ll see you in the crowd Wednesday night 8.30pm!

Thursday at 2pm there is the long awaited Curators’ Tour with Alice Lyons, where she will lead a walk through Tracy Hanna and Audrey Reynolds’ exhibitions in the galleries. Lots has been said and felt about the current exhibitions, this may be the hour to see things from a different perspective or get involved in a discussion about art, everyone is more than welcome and admission is free. And yes, maybe this is my last chance to figure out that title Bayard Eade just yet; I’ll keep ya posted on that too!

So my friends, this is a week in one post once again, I am very much hoping that the next time I am logging on for you will be in my own cosy home, with my own working broadband and with a couple of cute little links, pictures and a bit more research up my sleeve for you! If you all want to ring Vodafone to speed things up, please go ahead, I am starting to have broadband withdrawal symptoms anyway!

Have a great week, enjoy our programme, and if none of the shows is for you this time please feel free to just drop by, have a cuppa in the Jury Room Café, take time out, read something and see the amazing Photo Exhibition from The Boyle Camera Club, their pictures are really and truly something else!

 All the best,

Your Dock Blogger
