“I’m throwing an event this Saturday (1pm – 3pm) for the Beatyard festival at the Bernard Shaw, Richmond Street, Dublin 2, Just wondering if it would interest your readers? Tickets are €5 but if you use the code BEATYARD they are just €3, for that you get:
- tasting of Brown Paper Bag Project beers with brewer Brian Short
- digital photography class with Claire Nash
- some pizza…”
