1. Battle of the Paddles – Table Tennis Tournament
Are you one of those who feel the rush whenever a competition is on? Then, I am happy to tell you that the Table Tennis Tournament “Battle of the Paddles” is back in the Workman’s Club. From Tuesday 24 Jan until the finals on Thursday 26 Jan, it will be a three day competition. There will be qualifiers on Tuesday and Wednesday and if you made it through on either of the days (you can try on Tues and on Wed), then you have a chance on Thursday to play for the big honour and glory.
But that’s not all, there will also be all kinds of spot prizes on each night as well as a mega-sound big prize for the overall winner on Thursday night. You can catch up with the revealing of the prizes on social media. If the competitiveness hasn’t hit you yet, I’m sure those prizes will be your stimulus!
Tip: Pre-register online emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by just coming along by 7 o’clock SHARP on the night. (Pre-registering guarantees you a spot – and fair warning, our last tournament was rammed, so do apply to avoid sad faces.)
Where: Workman’s Club, 10 Wellington Quay, Dublin 2
When: 24 to 26 January at 19:00
Price: Admission is free. Pre-registration is is strongly suggested, last time the tournament was booked out.

2. The Pillowman
Decadent Theatre Company, in association with the Arts Council and the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, are embarking on a tour of Martin McDonagh’s award winning, The Pillowman, and will grace the Gaiety stage from Tuesday 24th to Sunday 5th February. Following the success in theatres across the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, this production marks the second national tour of this brilliant tragicomedy.
The Pillowman awarded with two Tony Awards and Olivier Award for Best New Play , engages the audience through the police interrogation of a young writer and the fantastical tales he creates. Silliness cuts through the very dark subject matter, as Katurian tells his stories, and the audience starts to weave some sense out of his gruesome tales, inspired by the darkest corners of the dustiest volumes of the Brothers Grimm’s tales.
Be prepared to be kept on the edge of your seat to the very last line!
Where: Gaiety Theatre, South King St, Dublin 2
When: Tuesday 24th January to Sunday 5th February, 2:30 PM / 7:30 PM
